So many beautiful images of Antwerp, Pieter! It seems to be a very inviting city!

The Eleventh Commandment (Elfde Gebod). Wow... I was visited this place... (time is running fast) 7-8 years ago... while I was involved in the co-operation with KBC. Nice colors and composition. Thanks for awakening a few memories... :-)

An evening shot from 2014, walking across a temporary pontoon bridge which was set up to commemorate the start of WW1 in which such a bridge helped a lot of people flee the city under siege.

Last week the sky above Antwerp was lit by a huge flare, from one of the chemical plants in the port of Antwerp.



And this is what the flare looks like from a closer distance. The flame is at least 10 to 15 meters high...

Nice shots Eddy, I used to work at that plant from 1996 until 2001.

Now it's part of the Total refinery and petrochemical site but at that moment it was called FAO (Fina Antwerp Olefins). Critics sometimes joked that FAO stood for Flare Always On

It was a bit of an overstatement, but not totally unjustified

Thanks Peter!

Was it also visible from your home?

A friend of mine who lives in Ranst (about 20 km from the flare) told me that it was also visible there.
