I’ve Been Taking Shots Of Budapest In Fog For 10 Years (17 Pics)
My name is Nandor Lang, I'm 46. I work as a photographer, and I tend to travel a lot, and I also run a studio and a printing company. I like to photograph nature as well as cityscapes; I explore other artistic avenues as well.
I spent 10 years exploring the capital city of Hungary during misty days and nights, hunting for unrepeatable moments. Fog somehow always produces an air of mystique (no pun intended).
If you like what you see, check out my Instagram profile and my website, where there are more similar and not-so-similar, even more artistic works of mine. Enjoy!
Sun Breaking Through The Fog, 2017
The Hungarian Parliament building is the third-largest parliament building in the world. It was finished in 1902 after nearly 20 years of construction and contains 691 rooms.

When the fog falls, the ships disappear from the River.
The Lost Traveller, 2013
Only the Parliament Building’s dome and towers emerge from the thick blanket of fog that creeps over the Danube River and covers the entire city of Budapest at dawn. In the distance, the fog lights of an early-rising traveller"s car shine on the embankment.
Pillars In The Mist, 2011
The pillars of the Chain Bridge stand out from the mist.
Over The Clouds, 2018
The City sleeps under a blanket of fog on a cold winter morning. Only a 203 m high chimney can peer through the thick layer of valley fog, which often forms in low-lying areas on cold clear nights, especially in fall and winter.
A few windless days in October prevented the smog from leaving the city. Mixed with the mist at dawn resulted in a hellish spectacle, like a scene from Blade Runner.

The sun is rising behind the Hungarian Parliament on a foggy day, outlining the contours of its stunning Gothic Revival architecture. The Parliament lies on the bank of Danube and is currently the largest building in Hungary.

Buda Castle (Hungarian: Budavári Palota, German: Burgpalast) is the historical castle and palace complex of the Hungarian kings in Budapest. It was first completed in 1265, but the massive Baroque palace today occupying most of the site was built between 1749 and 1769. The complex in the past was referred to as either the Royal Palace.
