Travel Photography – Return to Budapest

At the end of March I took the plunge and went to Budapest for 4 nights. A city that I had had on my list of places to go to for a long time. But I was greeted by 4 days of non-stop grey weather as well as my flight over being delayed by just over 3 hours.

Despite doing my best during my time there it just felt tiresome seeing the flat and lifeless sky each day. In total I probably had about 3 hours of workable light during the whole time.

So in mid-April just 2 weeks afterwards I decided to head back over to Budapest, rent an apartment and try again. And this time I was greeted by sunnier days and also spring had transformed the city in that small amount of time.

As a travel photographer I very much rely on the weather. It might look all nice and arty in the grey but it doesn’t cut it for me. I want to make my destinations look as beautiful as they should be!
