Fotoeins Friday: over the edge at Nebelhorn (Bayern 100)

I don’t ski nor do I (snow)board; I have my ankles and knees to thank for that. However, any perspective whether it’s personal or geometrical deserves recognition.

At Höfatsblick (1932 metres / 6339 feet) under the Nebelhorn summit, there’s a restaurant and many are lying out on deck chairs getting their sun on. These two skiers seem to linger at the edge of a downhill slope with the Allgäu Alps looming in the distance beyond. Timing is everything, and I press the shutter button as one remains still while the other proceeds downhill.

November 2018 is the 100th anniversary for the declaration of Bavaria as “free state” (Freistaat). I made the picture above on 5 March 2017 with the Canon 6D, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/20, ISO500 and 65mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at as
