Recently, I have been converting some of my photos into HDR photos to understand the effects.
It was a very serene scene with some beautiful clouds too.
The clouds here look more dramatic and shows more details,
but I rather like the mood of the original picture.
What do you think?
The trip to the Baltic countries is memorable.
However, I have totally mixed up the names of the places I visited in Latvia and Lithuania.
The only place I have very clear memory is the Trakai castle – a beautiful castle by the Lake Galve.
This is the most fairy tale like castle I have ever visited!
I am not done yet on this challenge, as I still have some photos to show.
The main subject is the sailing boat which is at the left hand third of the photo.
To be able to capture this boat in front of the dreamy castle is one of my biggest Reward (this week’s WPC challenge).
Please enjoy 🙂

Lake Galvė is a lake in Trakai, Lithuania. It has 21 islands, and one of them houses Trakai Island Castle ( see my previous posts). The lake and most of the other lakes surrounding the castle and city have myths and legends connected to them, of which most contain a tragic love story. The lakes and castle are therefore also said to be haunted.
It found it very serene – with the sailing boats and the blue sky.
Hope the serene scenes bring serenity and inner peace.
This week’s photo challenge is Threes.
The Challenger wants us to tell a story with a series of three pictures.
I don’t have a story to tell.
Last of all, the fairy tale is retold in black and white, making it more surreal.
You may say that I am cheating as I am just showing the same image of Trakai castle in the Baltics over and over.
Please forgive this blogger, as he is running out of stories 🙂
