Photographer's Note

The Szecheny Chain Bridge is Budapest's oldest. While the span itself was destroyed during the Battle of Budapest in World War II, the pylons survived; after the war ended, the span itself was rebuilt. Behind the bridge, on the Pest side of the river, stands the dome of St. Stephen's (St. Istvan's) Cathedral. Istvan was the legendary founder of the Hungarian state, and his right hand remains mummified and on display within the church.

This shot was taken from the funicular coming down the hill from Buda Castle on a cold and rainy day. The poor lighting and conditions made getting good shits difficult; this particular shot has been sharpened and color corrected to try to make up for the overcast day.
