Driving from the Tatra Mountains to Vienna to get the flight home, we made sure to stop by Bojnice to take in this picturesque castle. I would have loved to have been here during the blue hour of a sunrise or sunset, rather than in the middle of the day when it’s 33 degrees Celsius, but when you’re only in a country for a short period of time it’s impossible to do everything you want to do, especially if you are hoping to do them during particular light. As such, you have to make do with what you have and hope to have clouds, or the composition in relation to the sun on your side.
I was lucky in that respect, as the most beautiful angle to view the castle, for me anyway, was from this spot which didn’t have the sun directly in view. Thus I was able to ensure there were no flares, and no horrible blob of sunny mess in the final image, and I could concentrate on the castle itself.
I do wish I had been here for a sunrise though.
