The good thing about carrying you photo gear with you all the time is that when you get some spare time you can shoot some unexpected photos in the location you’re in.
Today, while my girlfriend was busy, I had some time to spend. It wasn’t planned at all, however I was close to the Château de Chillon. It’s an amazing castle at the end of the Geneva lake close to Montreux (See map at the bottom).

It was actually a bad day for photography, it was one of these gray white days, you know when the landscape is medium gray and the sky light gray, everything looks washed out. However the overcast reflected quit nicely the lights from the urban life during the twilight and the long exposure brought out the remaining blue from the dark twilight sky.
