A few days ago I took a detour to visit Devin Castle at the Austrian/Slovak border. It's a big castle on top of a small hill (or a huge rock if you prefer), first mentioned in the 9th century. From the castle, you'll have a beautiful view over the Danube. The castle also has a small museum with all kinds of medieval artefacts.

I took the photo approximately 1 hour before sunset, which resulted in a decent orange / golden tint, especially on the rock.

I took the photo with the iOS8 camera app of the iPhone 5S and applied a little post processing in Nik Viveza and Nik Define. Nik Viveza lets me selectively adjust color and tonality, which I used to soften the orange / golden tint a bit. I used Nik Define to denoise the photo with a focus on the sky.
