Wawel | Kraków, Poland
There are days when you wake up in the morning and even though it is still pitch black outside, you already have a feeling that the photos are going to be great today. This was such day when I found myself more or less running through Kraków to be at the Castle Wawel on time. Somehow distances in unfamiliar places look always that much smaller on a map than what they really are.
But the running was worth it, I was just on time. The Wawel, residence of the Polish kings for so many centuries, was still enlightened and offered, together with the clouds, a breathtaking scene. I set up my tripod in the mud of the Vistula river bank and just as I finished shooting, the lights went off. I guess, once more I was incredibly lucky, but next time I rather wake up 10 minutes earlier.
