The Chain Bridge and Buda Castle Palace, (above), are bathed in light at dusk on the Blue Danube. Mátyás Church, with its landmark Gothic spire, was used as a kitchen by German soldiers during World War II, then as a Soviet stable, before being restored to its original glory. — Photos by Mary O’Connor © 2016 (part of an ongoing series of Danube River cruise photos)

  1. The quote and the pictures are just magnificent! Rumi is one of my favorites!
    Your ability to capture such beauty through the camera lense is amazing.
    Thank you for sharing this trip with us all.
