In Budapest’s heart the Danube river is rarely seen in this frozen state.

It occurred 5 years ago last time, this is why it’s a special moment.

It was worth being out in the -20 C degrees to capture its beauty.

‘Fairy Tale Lake.’

Capture
“This little lake is a part of my life,” writes Your Shot member Gabor Dvornik, who lives half a mile from its location on a natural reserve in Sződliget, Hungary.
“I shoot here nearly every month, sometimes every week.
It has a very special air in every season, but to have a nice, misty day is rare, as wind is always present due to the nearby Duna River.
”Seeing the fog during a last glance outside the night before, Dvornik slept only three hours to make it to the lake for a “dream” shoot. “It was utterly ghostly and very moody out there,” he writes.
“I felt like I was in a fantasy tale, in an enchanted land.
I was so euphoric that I made around 500 captures and walked around the lake two to three times.”

Frozen Budapest.

IMG_0790__880Makro86
On a Monday afternoon back in December of the year 2014 I got a call from a photographer, that a whole district of Budapest is totally under ice and the trees are falling over because of the ice pressure.
At this moment I never thought that this call would end in the most exciting press-work of my whole life.
I met with other photographer in the early hours of the following day and we get up the hills of Buda.
We just knew one thing – everyone told us “don’t go up there, it’s extremely dangerous”.

But we had to. After we exit the bus we saw the first tree falling over, just a few meters away from us.
After this awful shock we started our way into little streets, far away from the main street, listening to one sound – the sound of the trees. The sound of branches braking under the weight of Ice.
The little once were not that dangerous, but nearly every ten minute we saw a giant tree collapsing, braking into the roof of a house or falling on a car.
I personally was not afraid, because I knew that I had to do my job. I had to show people the power of nature, so there was no time to think about the consequences.
By looking up for nearly the whole time (I had never watched trees and branches for such a long time) I photographed powerful nature to show what it is able to do to helpless people.
