Bloemencorso Loenhout 2011 (11 September 2011)

Bloemencorso Loenhout 2011, a set on Flickr.

We went to the Bloemencorso yesterday, the annual flower parade held in Loenhout every second sunday of September. Unfortunately the weather was not as good as Saturday where the temperature soared to 25 degrees celsius or higher. When I look at my photos taken for last year's bloemencorso, the weather seemed to be much better, at least you can catch a glimpse of blue sky with clouds, not like the grey and overcast sky this year.

This year's parade was supposed to start at 2pm, but it started a bit later, since it started to drizzle lightly. The audience all came prepared with raincoats and umbrellas, luckily the rain didn't last for long. It disappeared quickly, and only started to drizzle again when the last flower-carriage appeared. So in a way, we were still lucky with the weather. :)

I didn't manage to squeeze myself into a good position to snap any shots of the kinderwagons. It was really a pity, cos you get to see toddlers and primary school children proudly parading with their cute painted faces and elaborate costumes, and pushing their little flower carriages along. But once I managed to settle myself in a comfortable corner, I took a few photos of the juniorwagons, not all of them, and a series of photos of volwassenenwagons (adult flower carriages).  How I wish the weather could be better, as the photos turn out to be quite dark due to the overcast sky, even though I had tried my best to adjust the aperture and settings of my SLR camera.
