PhotoHunt - Balanced

The shots were taken from a window of a moving coach en route from Germany to Switzerland. Most of the pictures turned out to be apparently fuzzy and clearly out of focus as the bus was moving with great speed. However, here are some of my best shots to share for this week's photohunt.

The water seemed to be perfectly still and everything had a balanced reflection except for the small patch of snow on the lake surface.


I was mesmerised by the gorgeous mountainous countryside but it was frustrating to just pass by so quickly on a bus, resulting in some of the details were lost in the pictures. It would have been excellent if the bus could stop, spending a pleasant hour or two strolling around in order to capture a more balanced view .

  13. Lovely scenery! This is why I don't like buses travel and rather rent a car to stop and enjoy the gorgeous vistas.

    Happy Weekend!

  14. Were you on a guided group tour and that's why you couldn't stop? I must confess that experiences like you described is why I very much prefer independent travel...

    On a positive note: you really were traveling amidst beautiful scenery, weren't you? :)
