Evening photo: Misty lake, Hungary

“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.”

    For this week’s musical offering, I salute Cuba’s greatest musician, Ernesto Lecuona, a contemporary of Gershwin. As a reward for making Havana the capital of Latin American music, the Castros drove him into exile, where he died soon afterwards. Here is Lecuona’s best known composition, arranged and performed by Ferrante and Teicher.

        Heard it before but would not have been able to give a name or a composer. Thank you to Norman_In_New_York.

    I could live there happily, I think.

      Beware rising damp!

    You have excelled yourself, Frau Katz.
    A beautiful, atmospheric, picture.
    There really is something about mist and sunrise/sunset.
