Hello Paul, all three pictures are worthy of being a main post.
Very interesting to view the traditional houses built on stilts with the very modern design of the bridge in the background, and the speedboats in the foreground.
Perfect timing for your composition.

I hope that you are safe where you live.
The power of water cannot be ignored, after seeing some of the devastation on TV news last night; peoples homes that now look like firewood, and a caravan that crumpled like aluminium foil!
Take care.
Kind regards, Jean.

Thank you Jean,


I live in the centre of the country. Here there are few problems.
In some places water of smaller floods has entered the houses, but there is only material damage.
In the west there was little or no rainfall.

However, real disasters have occurred throughout the eastern part of Belgium. At the moment, 20 dead people have been found and 20 more are still missing.
We have never had such a rainfall and floods before and for many such scenes are incomprehensible.

The river Maas (Meuse), which is only 50 meters wide in some places, is now 1 kilometer wide in the same place.
The rain has now stopped, but in different places the rivers are still swelling and the walls and a dike may break. It is scary waiting.
Over the border in Germany it is even worse and there are many more victims.

Kind regards,
Paul
