We should have known it: the end of October isn't the best time for taking a vacation. From day one the fog didn't leave us, on the last day it started snowing, telling of a dark and longer winter to come. But there was this great Dark Romanticism exhibition which was worth bearing the bad weather. And somehow both were complementing each other superbly.

@Phil Morris: No winter, this was a day in late October last year. :-)

@franz: Dankeschön! Natürliches High-key gewissermaßen, denn es war die ganze Zeit neblig. Am letzten Tag gab es dann Schnee. Ende Oktober.

Hi there, nice to see you back :)
Super frame and monochrome. Huge arc above image makes a good compo, much more interesting than a white plain sky ;)

@Mariana Maoduš: Fortunately there are a lot of bridges at Main River. Feels good to be here again! :-)

Welcome back, MS! A beautiful composition with a great PoV! I love how the underside of the bridge envelopes the frame from above. So good to see you once again!

@Steven: Many thanks, Steven! A pleasure to be here again!

I'm pretty sure there must have been some colours left along the river....

@Japanalia: Almost nothing. If there wasn't this art exhibition (which had a rather dark topic, actually), it would have been kind of a black-and-white vacation. As future posts will show.
