There was some very beautiful light this evening as I was working on the balcony … and so I decided to grab my camera and started snapping a few shots for my own little souvenirs.
But then … such a beautiful view deserves to be shared. So this was how it had looked like from our balcony this evening just before 8.00 o’clock.
I love the juxtaposition of grey clouds and bright light. Although the day had been mostly sunny, there was a short spell of light drizzle in the evening which explained the grey clouds (or rain clouds).
A few close-up shots.
PS: In case you are wondering what are those poles that you see on the top three pictures … they are to indicate the height of the buildings that will be built in that empty fields. It is a legal requirement in the canton of Vaud (which Lausanne belongs to), for building developers to indicate the height of the building that is to be built.
Fortunately for us, the buildings that are going to be constructed (a large residential complex covering a wide area) are not high enough to block our view of the lake. However, our neighbours staying in the lower floors will not be as lucky. Poor them … 😦
