I had no idea that there would be a Slovak flag on the Bratislava castle for the New years, and they even added 2016 to it after midnight. So when I saw it, I had to get to a better spot to take a photo, even if it was 1 in the morning already and my fingers were freezing. And as I was taking the fireworks photo from the castle fortifications, the better spot was on the other side of Danube. Getting through all the people that tried to cross the bridge in the opposite direction was quite and ordeal :)

This is a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

2016

Technique: Photoshop edit, Number of exposures: 1, Camera Model: Canon EOS 5D mark II, Lens: Canon 24-70mm F2.8, Focal length: 70mm, Aperture: 5.6, Middle exposure time: 6s, ISO: 400, Tripod used: yes, Location: 48.141600, 17.102695

I hope you all had a great start into the new year, and here goes my first photo of the year, and of course its one from the midnight fireworks :)

Happy New Year

Of course I can’t end the year with a different than a fireworks photo. This one was taken at the 1.1.2015, and in few hours I will post one from the 1.1.2016 (if the weather holds and I get some good new ones :)).

So to all of you, have a great Silvester, and good start into 2016 :)

Last one for 2015

Still no signs of any snow this year, and from the look of the forecast, it’s the same everywhere. At least it looks like its getting colder and the fog is lifting. But for now, another shot from the archives.

And more for the Christmas theme, this time from the decorations at the Eurovea shopping center in Bratislava.
