Fireworks over the Danube in Budapest

Fireworks over Danube in BudapestAs I mentioned yesterday, let’s do another photo of the St. Stephen’s Day fireworks today. I really had a great view, to see all of them at once. Maybe just form the castle to the left would be a nicer view. But it’s really hard to get a good spot there. The number of people in the city was huge, and a lot of spots are closed off during the fireworks.

Even the spot I got, under the Citadel, was only by luck. I got there 2 hours before the fireworks, and from my experience, that should have been enough. But to my surprise, the area was already full of people with cameras and tripods. Only by pure luck, a lady was leaving from this spot and I managed to put my tripod there. Next time I’m going even earlier.

St. Stephen’s day fireworks 2019

I have not posted anything yesterday, but I did go to Budapest in the evening, to try and get some photo of the St. Stephnen’s day fireworks over the city. And as you can see, I got some. So today, and the next few day’s I will post photo I got there.

This year I decided to go up to the Citadel over the city, to be able to see the whole show. Usually, the fireworks are fired off from 4 locations, but this year, they were done from 9. 7 boats and two bridges. They were really cool and I really enjoyed them. I did though overexposed a lot of photos, as they were crazy bright. Much brighter than I expected. Still looked good.

Under the Matthias Church tower

Yesterday’s photo was from under one tower, today we have another. This is the Matthias Church on the right and the Holi Trinity statue to the left. If you ever at this place in Budapest, definitively check out the church. It’s very beautiful inside. And if you have the stamina to do so, try also to walk up to the top of the tower. It’s not the easiest walk, but the view is great. I think it’s the heighes point you can get to in Budapest, not sure if the Citadel is higher or not. Still, it’s higher that the city.

This is a two exposure vertorama, combined and edited in Photoshop.

Morning at the wooden bridges in Bokod

One of the places I really have to revisit is the wooden bridges at the fisherman’s houses in Bokod in Hungary. They are like made to be a perfect photo subject. I took this photo in late 2017 while stopping there for one day. The weather was not the best, as the sky was very bland, even for the sunrise. Still, few photos turned out alright.

This one, is a single exposure, taken with a 10stop ND filter. The bridges make the view looking very wide, even if this is only taken at 25mm.

Fireworks over the Chain bridge

Good that I did not go to take the photos of fireworks yesterday, as they ended up canceling them altogether due to bad weather. But I still was in the mood to edit another fireworks photos, so here is a photo I have not posted before. This one was taken during the St. Stephens day celebrations in Budapest, Hungary.
