How the view of my bedroom window ended on the cover of two newspapers today

While having been on the road for this entire weekend photographing assignments, I thought I finally could enjoy the weather in my backyard.

No, Heavy storms passed over Belgium, with hail stones like easter eggs.

This hail didn’t fall over here, but I did see a sky I had never seen.

This sky looked like the sea in a heavy storm. It looked like an upside down painting of the ocean!

 

I took some snaps,

and while I thought it would be ok to send to our national newspapers through our photographers collective IMAGEDESK, I gave it a try.

 

The very next morning two national Newspapers had used the same image on their frontpage.

I don’t like assignments about the weather (meaning national) where the photoeditor asks you to do something with snow/rain/hail/storm or whatever.

But this way, just because I wanted to make this picture to help keep this moment, is a nice way to get my work published.

 

 

Have a look at the frontpage of De Standaard and De Tijd.

You can also order your print to hang on your wall or to publish it in your magazine.
