I wasn’t surprised to learn that the central area of Budapest that is situated along the Danube River is part of the UNESCO World Heritage. There are many remarkable buildings there, such as the Hungarian Parliament (you can see it, glittering on the picture) or the Fisherman’s Bastion. Another golden point which you can see in this photo is Saint Stephen Basilica.
The Bâtiment des Forces Motrices, also known as BFM in Geneva, is a building, which immediately put me under its spell. During an evening stroll through the second largest city in Switzerland the sumptuous illuminated building in the middle of the river Rhône caught my photographic eye in a heartbeat. The BFM was originally constructed between 1883 and 1892 as a hydroelectric power plant and was used as such until 1960.
The Bridge of the Slovak National Uprising (Most SNP or Nový most) is the most popular part of Bratislava’s Skyline apart from the castle. This new bridge over the Danube connects the Old Town with the district Petržalka which is located right at the Austrian border. Special about the bridge is the so called UFO which sits high up on the bridge pillars on the southern end.
As the heavens opened up a bit and the UFO was illuminated in the orange light, it seemed to me as if I saw a version of the famous scene from the movie Independence Day – live in Bratislava. Surely, soon the first laser beams would appear across the Danube and raze the city to the ground…
With only one day of shooting in Verona, we had to make it up to the Castel San Pietro to get the best view over the city. That one day was rather foggy, but you have to make the best of it. Since I wasn’t happy with the lighting conditions, I decided to play a bit more in the post-processing.
