Buda Castle by maggiemae

Buda Castle

After a few hiccups we ended up in Budapest. I do have to research the history of this place. John said he learnt it at school - I didn’t!
This is a very short distance from our latest hotel set in a building that was built in the 16th Century! The window sills are over a metre wide!
Three good things:
1. the flight from Belgrade to Budapest was only 40 minutes.
2. A lovely big room here - we could have a party - but we won’t!
3. I heard great Hungarian music from the next restaurant to ours - remember learning a Hungarian Mazurka at ballet as a young girl!
Such a beautiful image. Enjoy your stay.

A beautiful image.
#3 I remember a violin player at our table somewhere in a hotel in Budapest long ago. He played the most beautiful Hungarian music for us...

Love that reflective pavement- John had a very thorough history education! Never been to Belgrade or Budapest but I booked Nigel into a really posh hotel there once for not much money!

Lovely golden light and reflections on the pavement... hoping to see it in person, some day. :)

@judithg Budapest is a lot more sophisticated yet 'cheap' than Belgrade which has 2 million people that seem well off but there is some really poor areas!

Wonderful night shot with a great perspective to see the architectural details

@seattlite They really don't make them like this nowadays do they!!

Great night photo - I love how the glow is reflected back from the damp stones. Looks an amazing castle to visit.

@busylady I found it really cold with a north west wind but tomorrow snow is forecast! Should be magic!
January 2nd, 2018  
Such wonderful lighting!
January 2nd, 2018  
you are doing a fine line in night photography here. I do hope you are getting to enjoy more of the daylight too! Having said that, the castle looks great in the night light.

Beautiful night shot. Pity you couldn't get the top of the spire as well but maybe that was intentional? Nice reflections on the paving too.
January 2nd, 2018

@kwiksilver I couldn't stand any further back to get the top of the spire without losing some of the paving, Gillian! It is really so high!
