Snow shoes, Les Pléaides, March 2001

And we had lots of snow… These are the oldest pictures I have in digital form. All previous material I only have in analog form. I had the intention to… Read more »

Snow shoes, Les Pléiades, Februari 2002

  The third week on snow shoes, once again in Switzerland. And the first days it was quite heavy: because the lack of snow at lower altitudes, we needed to go high up, where the slopes became quite steep… But it was a very nice week. Probably because of good company (we were with four… Read more »

Lake District, July 2002

  The Lake District (Wales) is known as one of the wettest regions in Europe. Reason: the jet stream comes down there and brings a lot of humidity. And that’s what we noticed… At least in the morning. Every morning it rained, so the hikes were shortened. By the time we arrived at the next… Read more »

Pontresina, August 2003

  I spend a week near Sankt-Moritz, in the less mondaine village of Pontresina. Very pretty weather (among which impressive thunder-clouds) and a hike on a glacier, under the supervision of a real ‘Bergführer’… Eddy

Ortler and Stelvio, July 2004

  A week at the border of Switzerland and Italy, close to the famous Stelvio pass (the one with that huge amount of hairpin bents). The weather wasn’t always what it should be. The yaks – yes, thera are yaks in the Alps – made it unforgetable. Eddy

Nepal, winter 2004/2005

  The big dream of every hiker: Nepal. The hike itself was quite light, the highest point was 3000 meter. Our hike was a trekking in the valley of Kathmandu. It was – for several reasons – an unforgettable experience. And, Nepal is an ideal photo model… While assembling the gallery, I did get nostalgic…. Read more »

40 years…

October 2005 I became 40 years old… So it was time for a bit of tradition: every ten years I publish a book. At 30 I published one with poems and short stories (30 copies, for family and friends). At 40 I have been looking for inspiration for some time… eventually the idea came from… Read more »

Upstate New York, November 2005

  Each year in November I go to Rochester (NY), for a symposium. Due to the cheaper flights, I usually also spend the WE there, so I have time to discover the region. This time the weather was really nice, especially for the time of the year. I went to some (smaller) national parks in… Read more »

Snow shoes, winter 2005/2006

  The traditional week on snow shoes was in the Queyras (France). It was cold, extremely cold: in the morning when we started it sometimes was -16 °C… During the day it got warmer of course, but still there sometimes was a bitter cold wind, with a lot of wind chill of course. Eddy

Vercors, summer 2006

And it was the world championship football (or soccer for the American visitors), we’ve seen the defeat of France on a small town square, with a big… Read more »

Grand Canyon, October 2006

  A few times a year I travel for my job. In October 2006 I ended up in Las Vegas, for a conference/exhibition. Because it is a rather long trip from Belgium, I took a few days vacation to go to the Grandy Canyon, which is only a half day drive from Las Vegas. The… Read more »

Snow shoes, Februari 2007

  Yes, once again a week on snow shoes. This time it was a hike from Nevache to the Queyras (France). Due to all kinds of circumstances, we were only 3 plus the local guide. One of the days was really impressive: we spend the night in a distant hut, from there we went on… Read more »

Ötztal, summer 2007

  During the summer of 2007 I spend a week in the Ötztal (Austria), you know, where the iceman Ötzie was found. A very pretty valley. And we got another surprise: during a hike on the glacier – it was mid August – we were surprised by a very heavy snow storm. Visibility about 10… Read more »
