And once again I visited Dzērbene and this time with my new camera :)
For those who don't remember, here is the last year thread:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=387110
But this time the weather was just crazy, one second the sun shines the next second it rains so much that you just see a white wall of rain drops

Here are this years photos:

5. From the cementry hill


6. The sky over Dzērbene

Interesting comment about the brightness, my laptop at home shows the images nice and bright, at work the LCD monitor shows them as somewhat dark. Go Figure.

About the brightness:
It's magic :D ... not everyone is worthy to see them normal :D

But seriously ... even on the camera display images 24. - 27. are dark ... I asume that it's because of this combination: I used the setting for landscapes on my camera + the weather started to change so it was almost as dark as late in the evening
