Pest / ----------- \ Buda

Explored! Highest Position: #38


From gold to blue now back to gold? Come on, what do expect this is Budapest.


This is your typical postcard view of Budapest, it's been done a thousand times before, but only once by me, and I want it in my stream. This is the Széchenyi Chain Bridge with the Buda Castle in the background. The castle sits perched atop Castle Hill on the West Bank of the Danube River. It is the historical castle of the Hungarian kings. The first Royal Residence was built on top of the hill by King Béla IV of Hungary between 1247 and 1265. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.


This is the best composition I could come up with, in the time I had. I wish I would have been over on this side before complete darkness, but I was busy here instead.


It still works for me though, the light on the bridge and the golden glow of the castle make it look rich.


From here we move on to another country in Eastern/Central Europe. Which way are we going from here, East, West, North... no one knows, but me.


We'll say goodbye to Budapest and Hungary for now, but maybe we'll be around again.

I want to thank everyone for all the comments and faves lately :D
