It’s been a while since I did a night shot challenge. We recent had the chance to visit Budapest, Hungary. One evening, we strolled from Castle Hill down to the banks of the Danube River looking for great night shots of the beautifully illuminated buildings and structures of the city. The first photo is the famous Parliament Building from the banks of the Danube. The second photo is the Chain Bridge taken close to where we took the picture of the Parliament Building, just swinging the camera down the river instead of up. The third photo is the Matthias Church on Castle Hill. The last photo is the Parliament Building from the Fisherman’s Bastion. I highly recommend visiting Budapest. Wonderful food, amazing sites, and fun adventures (the Széchenyi Medicinal Bath was a blast!) await the adventurous soul.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF NIGHT SHOTS.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
- Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
- To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
- Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
- Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

Your night shots are stunning, Nancy!
Budapest would be one of my first thoughts for night photography – I dread to think what it coats the city and the environment, but the lighting of the buildings is amazing
It is simply beautiful. All of the buildings and attractions that are lit are also the big tourist draws, so they probably justify the expense with the income from the tourist industry.
costs not coats!
And I’m back with a contribution to the challenge now: https://travelwithintent.com/2018/06/24/london-tower-bridge-icm/
Simply beautiful. Not sure I will get a post done before I leave town but it is a great challenge.
Thanks, Marie! Have a great trip!
Not sure if I will do this one, but in case I don’t I just wanted to say that I really like that last photo.
Thanks! It was a fun shot to set up. 🙂

Thank you Nancy for such an amazing introduction to Budapest for me 🙂
I hope you can visit it someday. It’s an amazing city during the day as well as at night. 🙂
I would love to 🙂
Here’s my second challenge!
The bridge and the arches are my two favorites, but I do love night photography! Thank you!
Thanks, Marilyn. A good lens and a steady tripod are my best tools. 🙂
Nancy, these shots are breathtaking.
Thanks, Andrea. The city is amazing. It would be difficult to take a bad picture. 🙂
Love your shots of Budapest. Night time Soho for you this week Nancy 🙂 https://2e0mca.wordpress.com/2018/06/23/a-photo-a-week-challenge-light-the-night/

Night photography is so difficult. Your photos are extraordinary. My photo was taken in Venice. http://haddonmusings.com/2018/06/24/a-photo-a-week-light-the-night/
I’ve been in very small towns in Michigan this week with not much lit up and not many hours in the night, for that matter. Managed one shot on the fly after dinner one night but that was about it!
