The title says it all : Belvedere.

For weeks on end the sky was grey and a thick layer of snow covered the countryside. Last Sunday it changed to a blue sky and bright sunlight. That was the moment to get out with a camera and enjoy the sun beams. I availed myself of the opportunity of trying my hand at HDR photography. The bright sky on one hand and the waterfall in the shadow on the other provided the ideal facility.
The amazing evening colours reminded me of my penchant for cold winter sunsets. The lights are intense and range from deep blue to burning red. A phenomenon hardly witnessed during the warmer summer time.
