A very sunny walk

Last week it was freezing and snowing, ice all around. This weekend it is sunny and even a bit warm. The temperature is about 20 to 25°C higher than last week. Everybody wants tyo come out and profit from the energy of the sun.

We are still in a semi lockdown so there are many rules to follow. On the radio they were calling on people not to come to the seaside because there are to many people already. I found that the last year the people on the seaside are very selfish and want the beach for themselve. So we went to the " Kalmthoutse heide" a moorland in the north of Antwerp, you can cross the border with Netherland here if walking in it. But that is not allowed for the moment.

This is a national park that always get a lot of visitirs, and today was not different. So we decided to go for a longer walk, that thins out the crowd.

My wife calls it Africa in Belgium and I think if you look at it you can wait for lions, giraffes and elephants to pass.

The last two are in color so you get a feel of how it looks in color there.

I prefer the B&W ones. Funny, when I looked at your first picture Africa came to mind, and then I read further on that your wife thinks the same.

The lack of colour certainly gives the images a different feel to the colour ones. I like them both but the monochrome just wins for me.

Africa was going to be my first comment. Great in black and white.

My preference is the color because it shows variety. The black and white makes it really look desolated, I can see why your wife calls it  Africa.
