Viroinval, in the south of the Belgian province of Namur, has to be one of the most picturesque corners of the Ardennes. I took these pictures over the course of a few days, but most are from my 50 kilometer bike-ride from Vierves-sur-Viroin to Dinant, which included a few kilometers in France. It was very cold, but that’s when this region’s is visually at its most atmospheric.
