Great holmertz 2022-04-26 11:54

Hello Paul,
It sounds unusual to me that a building or anything else you saw when much younger actually seems to have grown when you revisit it again many years later. Usually they would look disappointingly much smaller than you remembered them.

This abbey looks quite big to me, but of course I have nothing to compare it with. The main photo and WS #2 are quite similar but the main upload has the two trees as a bonus and a slightly wider view. Both photos are brightened by school kids, In the other WS there is something on the lawn in the foreground to anchor the composition. The fine weather provided all photos with splendid colours.
Best regards,

Default To holmertz: Elucidation

Thank you Gert,

What I meant was that the ruins in my younger days had made less of an impression on me for some unknown reason. Perhaps my interests went more to other things... I don't know...

During my recent visit I was very impressed and I highly recommend this site to anyone visiting Belgium.
The abbey is easily accessible by train from Brussels. The province of Walloon Brabant is really very close to Brussels (just not adjacent to it).

Kind regards,
