Gellert Hill at night – Budapest, Hungary

On the way to photograph the Liberty/Freedom/Franz Jospeh Bridge from the Pest side, I liked how the orange glow of Gellert Hill contrasted with the evening blue sky. Orange and blue are good complimentary colours to look out for at night. I don’t know if the Hungarian people prefer the term Liberty or Freedom when […]

Fisherman’s Bastion – Budapest, Hungary

It was a grey cloudy day which can be good for some photography, but not so for travel photography. The clouds do add some atmosphere to this image of the Fisherman’s Bastion and I desaturated it a little to produce the end result. If you would like to take a clean image of a building […]

Danube at Night – Budapest, Hungary

The view north, from the Chain Bridge, shows Buda on the west with the Margaret Bridge on the horizon helping to join the scene over to the Hungarian Parliament on the Pest side. The lights on the Hungarian Parliament are strong enough to illuminate the clouds above it. It was difficult balancing the lights on […]

Tram Stop & Chain Bridge – Budapest, Hungary

The tramway network in Budapest started in 1866 as a horse and cart service and provided electric cars from 1887. Just by the west side of the Danube River, where the Chain Bridge meets Buda, the tramline from Clark Ádám tér runs the “Batthyány tér M+H” line along the river. I did wait for this […]

Your photos from Budapest are amazing. I was wondering if they can be ordered anywhere? I found some of your photos on

Thanks and kind regards

Parliament Through The Trees – Budapest, Hungary

Climbing the stairs was a chore when carrying a backpack full of gear and a tripod. As I got to the top I took a breather and looked back at what I had scaled. I’m glad I did climb those stairs to get to Fisherman’s Bastion.

Chain Bridge – Budapest, Hungary

The Chain Bridge over the Danube is an iconic composition which I wanted to capture on this side of the river to include part of the Elizabeth Bridge, in the distance. The lights projecting onto the main supports are very bright, especially the ones at the top. It certainly allows the bridge to stand out […]

Wenceslas Square – Prague, Czech Republic

Technical (geek) Bit: I encountered quite a few issues taking this image. I had walked up and down Wenceslas Square during the day, sampling the sausages (yum!), and saw the roses standing up proud from the graphical swirls of the bushes underneath. I took a quick composition shot then and knew where to come back […]

Margaret Bridge – Budapest, Hungary

When I was photographing Charles Bridge at night, I noticed the effect of the street lamp lighting reflecting off the water from under Margaret Bridge. When I went to take the image the following evening, I forgot about the reflection and focused on setting up the leading line into the twist that happens with this […]

National Theatre – Prague, Czech Republic

This building is very brightly lit and extremely difficult to expose in such a way to balance the light on the building and capture the traffic’s light trails. I could spend days trying to “remove” the tram power lines but I won’t. I like what it adds to the composition.

Framing – Budapest, Hungary

I was not lucky with the weather in Hungary. It was overcast the whole time I was there, which was a contrast to the previous weeks blue skies and hot sunny days in Prague. So I tried to hide the cloudy skies with a frame within a frame shot of the Hungarian Parliament building. This […]
