The Aar River – the water, the sky and the cathedral

Two steeples across the Aar River

Two steeples as main subject

A beautiful bright sunlit day in Bern, Switzerland with the brilliant sparkling waters of the Aar River at your feet.   The view was so beautiful that you couldn’t come up with a bad photo if you tried.  (Well, maybe you could.)  After a while you can get complacent taking photos, one after another, all pretty much looking the same.  The solution is to vary the role of the river and its prominence in the photo.  Sometimes the river is the subject while at other times, it’s not.  Also vary the perspective, sometimes from a low point of view, sometimes higher. And consider framing the river within its environs.
