I've been to Brugge a few times now and have got to know many of the famous haunts. This spot is a Mecca for tourists and photographers alike with the dog leg in the canal, the ornate brick buildings and the towering Belfry in the background.
We were on my cycling clubs spring tour; Brugge is a short hop over the English Channel for us, (two hours by ferry), and a 65 mile bike ride. Lucky enough we had a car and a van for backup so I was able stow some of my photographic kit.
Late one night I was able to extricate myself from the usual socialising and leg it to this spot approximately a mile from our hotel. Thankfully most of the tourists, (yes I know I'm one), had left the city or were tucked away in their hotels for the evening. Blue hour was coming to an end and thankfully the canal was mirror calm. The huge tungsten lights gave the scene a surreal quality with their orange glow which allowed me to capture this gorgeous night scene.
7 exposure, tripod mounted hdr -3 - +3. Nikon D700 with 16 - 35 f4 vr @ 22mm. ISO 800, exposure 1/5 - 25 sec at f9. Post processing via adobe camera raw, photomatix, & photoshop with topaz clarity and de noise plugins. I really had to mess around with the pp to try and remove banding in the blue sky. Anyone ever come across this problem?

In all their 30 years of marriage, Hillary never looked.
On the afternoon of their 30th anniversary, curiosity got the best of her and she lifted the lid and peeked inside.
In the box were 3 empty beer cans and $81,874.25 in cash.
She closed the box and put it back under the bed.
Now that she knew what was in the box, she was doubly curious as to why there even was such a box with such contents.
That evening, they were out for a special anniversary dinner.
After dinner, Hillary could no longer contain her curiosity and she confessed, saying, "I am so sorry, Bill. For all these years, I kept my promise and never looked into the box under our bed.
However, today the temptation was too much and I gave in.
But now I need to know, why do you keep the 3 beer cans in the box?"
Bill thought for a while and said, "I guess after all these years you
deserve to know the truth.
Whenever I was unfaithful to you, I put an empty beer can in the box under the bed to remind myself not to do it again."
Hillary was shocked, but said, "Hmmm, Jennifer, Paula and Monica. I am very disappointed and saddened by your behavior.
However, since you are addicted to sex I guess it does happen and I guess 3 times is not that bad considering your problem."
Bill thanked her for being so understanding.
They hugged and made their peace.
A little while later Hillary asked Bill, "So why do you have all that money in the box?"
Bill answered: "Well, whenever the box filled up with empty cans, I took them to the recycling center and redeemed them for cash."
