Great photos of a wonderfully photogenic city. What's the name of that castle ? I'm sure there are some interesting stories associated with it.

Thanks Less,

The castle is named the 'Gravensteen' what could be freely translated as "the place of the Count".

The castle served as the seat of the Counts of Flanders until they abandoned it in the 14th century. The castle was then used as a courthouse, a prison and eventually decayed. In the beginning of the 20th century the city bought the castle and has been restoring it since then.

G'day Ronny

Again - thanks for sharing part of your 'backyard'
Your pix show good use of the w/a lens - certainly in those close-quarters you seem to need it more than a long-lens
I am enjoying the dark-coloured stone work for the buildings ~ obviously they are very old & not the sort of thing we have in the great land downunder

Regards, Phil

Very nice Ronny, I like the compositions and exposure, great detail, my favorites are 7 & 8,
This looks like a great subject for a challenge.

Nice pictures of a lovely city. I spent a little time in "Gent" in the late 80's when I was doing some work at NATO/SHAPE.

Thank Phil,

one of the reasons to get a wide angle was that I always had problems when getting pictures in a city.
Never regretted getting one.

Thanks Hans,

the challenge here was that last winter they had lighted the city and I wanted to see the same parcour as then in daylight.
