A small historical town in the Beligan Ardennes.

La Roche-en-Ardenne is a municipality of Belgium. It lies in the country's Walloon Region and Luxembourg Province.
On 1 January 2007 the municipality, which covers 147.52 kmē, had 4,348 inhabitants, giving a population density of 29.5 inhabitants per kmē.
Lying beside a bend in the River Ourthe, the small town of La Roche-en-Ardenne is one of the more popular tourist destinations in the Ardennes. Walking, kayaking, and mountain biking are among the outdoor pursuits available here. The municipality's other main economic activity is agriculture.

La Roche is believed to have first been settled in the Neolithic era. The Romans built a fort there following their conquest of Gaul and the Ardennes.
The town's medieval castle was in use between the 9th and 18th centuries.
In World War II, the town suffered severe damage. Having been liberated by the Allies in September 1944, the town was recaptured by the Germans in December, during the Battle of the Bulge. The subsequent Allied bombing raids resulted in the town being liberated once more in January 1945, but left much of the town destroyed, and many residents dead.

Hi Kristof,

wonderful image.

Great landscape, nicely composed and great colours. Well captured moment with people kayaking in the right corner of the image.

Have a nice day,


Bonjour Kristof
Very fun picture with great reflection and showing the typical stones for constructing the houses.
Well done

Nice sharp view Kristof- and the composition's excellent.. The diagonal line of the wall and the position of the castle work well together..
A dull day but exposure seems good. Obviously that means the sky is a little washed out but you can fix that in PS with 'grad filter effect'

Nice shot Kristof, crisp and sharp image. Love to see those greens that contrasting against the washout skies. A good placement of all elements in the frame too. Well done!

Elegant and well sharpened composition.

Hello Kris
good perspective and POV, I like colours and tones (I don't like white sky but think weather was not perfect), reflection in water is really nice, good work

HI Kristof,

Effective and appealing POV used for this photo. Interesting row of buildings along this riverside. The castle on the hill gives extra appeal. Interesting notes.
