Summer in Brugge is delightful but winter brings out the best for photographers. Every corner every lane way every canal offers a new experience for the passionate photographer

Bruges is beautiful and charming, even though I visit at a bad time of the year- in the winter, but just before the Christmas market opens! It feels safe, the people are friendly and it has many interesting historical monuments and attractions.
