If you want an elevated but zero-cost view of Salzburg’s Old Town, make sure you get the sun angle right. And if early mornings don’t give you the beatdown (because hey, coffee), ascend the steep steps of Kapuzinerberg. This rewarding view from the Hettwerbastei (Hettwer Bastion) faces southwest with the Hohensalzburg fortress at the upper left and Untersberg mountain in the background at right. Out of view from this vantage point and tucked behind Untersberg is Berchtesgaden in the southeast corner of Germany. Meanwhile, I’m sure you can make do with the illuminated colours from buildings along the south flank of the Salzach river. In 1996, UNESCO declared Salzburg Old Town as World Heritage Site.
I made the above photo on 22 May 2018 with the Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime and the following settings: 1/1000-sec, f/11, ISO2000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie on fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-bUy.
