fleur de tapis 2014

This is a photo of the fleur de tapis (flower carpet) in the Grand Place of Brussels Belgium.

Every 2 years, a huge display of over a million begonias is laid out in the middle of this large town square. The display lasts only a few days and thousands of people come to see the design.

The design is based on a theme. For 2014, the theme was dedicated to 50 years of Turkish immigration to Belgium and the pattern was created to look like a Turkish rug design.

This photo was taken on ground level. It's also possible to go into one of the town square buildings to see the design from a higher vantage point. But this year I brought my dogs and didn't get a chance to view it from above.

Canon EOS 7D 1/250 second F/5.6 ISO 400 24 mm
