Here at the Dreiflüsseck (Three-River-Corner) in Passau, the three rivers Danube, Inn, and Ilz converge. As the Dreiflüssstadt (Three Rivers City), Passau is known also as the “Bavarian Venice” for the low-lying peninsula where the city’s Altstadt (Old Town) resides. It also stands to reason the city has seen its fair share of flooding over the centuries. Under a light blanket of snow, the late-afternoon light and calm conditions combine to provide this beautiful winter scene where the Ilz river at centre-left converges with the larger Danube. The Veste Oberhaus is perched on the hill to the upper-left.
As part of my RTW journey, I made the photo above on 13 December 2012 with the Canon EOS450D (XSi) camera, EF-S 18-55 IS II lens, and the following settings: 1/500s, f/8, ISO200, 18mm (29mm). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-5ZE.
