Godfrey

This is a statue of Godfrey of Bouillon. It is in Brussels. I’m sorry but I do not know the name of the horse.

I had walked past this statue on the Saturday which was pretty much blue sky and no clouds. Though I took a few shots, I had done so while standing in the shadow of the statue, framing it so that the head was in front of the sun. It’s the only way I could get a shot, and I had hoped for a golden looking halo effect – that really didn’t work out.

I was pleased to return the next day when there were awesome clouds in place.

  1. Deserted streets, perfect cloudy sky – exactly what this shot required. Masterful
