Heidelberg, Evening

Posted by
GJC (Kyoto, Japan) on 20 July 2012 in Cityscape & Urban.

My little Lumix is so convenient and portable compared to my Nikon. But on this evening I was very sorry I did not have my Nikon with me. The way the golden light shot across the tops of the buildings and lit up the church spire was truly incredible and this poor shot only gives a vague hint of the beauty.

The light is really beautiful and warm on these lovely houses! It's an excellent shot!

I know what you are saying! I had a similar experience the other day when I only had my iPhone and not my DSLR.....But sometimes just seeing something beautiful and having the image in my mind is enough....Regardless, I love the light you were able to capture!

@Tracy: I agree with you completely. The only problem is when it comes to having something to post on the blog! But I agree that having seen it was more than enough satisfaction.

Perhaps...but the composition is perfect and my intuition fills in the glow.

@ordinaryimages: Thanks for the tip. I plan to visit the camera shop in the next week or two to check this out. I may have to wait for Santa, however...

It's a very beautiful image for those of us who will never get to see it through their own eyes!

I like as the light hangs on to buildings. We feel full of heat in this image !
