Budapest from Gellert Hill

Budapest from Gellert Hill

Photo Information
A popular view of Budapest but I was there just as the sun was dipping. 50 - 200mm used at 125mm and with an aperture of f11 everything is razor sharp. The bridges are (from the nearest) Chain Bridge (the first crossing of the Danube in Budapest), Margaret Bridge and Arpad Bridge (928m long). The Hungarian Parliament building dominates the view.

A very pleasant view of a capital city we don't see much of here in the UK. I liked the night shot of the bridge the other day as well.

It's a popular destination these days and there is a certain fascination with places which were "out of bounds" to us during the Soviet period.
This is one of the most photographed views in Budapest, I was just lucky to be there when the sun was shining!
