Photographer's Note

TIENEN is a town of some 30.000 inhabitants in (Flemish) Brabant. It became a regional center in the 16th century after the Gete river became navigable.

Like most cities in the Low Countries, Tienen has had a rough history with numerous sieges and revolts.

In Belgium Tienen is best known for its sugar refinery and "Klontjes van Tienen" still is a standard term in most Belgian households, refering to those famous little sugarcubes.

This picture is a close-up on a statue on the Grote Markt with the tower of the Onze-Lieve-Vrouwe-ten-Poelkerk, i.e. "the Church of Our Lady of the Pool", in the background. The oldest parts of this church date from the 13th century.

The statue is part of a circular fountain in the middle of the Grote Markt. I haven't found any more information about the actual statue, if someone knows more, let me know.

ISO-1600 on a very cloudy day

I first planned this as a bl/w shot, but finally decided to go for the subtle nuances of the colour version. But you might disagree, so I uploaded the bl/w in a WS.
