Fotoeins Friday: Säntis, Imperia, Bodensee, Konstanz

On the final full day of (northern) summer, late-afternoon light gets the people of Konstanz out to the shores of Lake Constance. The promenade on Seestrasse on the north side of the city is filling up with people walking by or bicycling. A young couple is all up on the public display of affection, while an older couple holds hands and look out into the lake. I’ve set the picture facing south, and with the zoom lens, I’ve aligned in the foreground the Imperia statue in Konstanz harbour underneath the Säntis mountain in Switzerland in the background.

I made the picture in late-afternoon light on 21 September 2017 with the Canon 6D, 70-300 glass, and the following settings: 1/640-sec, f/14, ISO1000, and 300mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at as

      Hi and thanks, Patti. After a long look at one of the most visited parts of the city’s waterfront and figuring out on a map where a good perspective would be in late-afternoon light, I walked over to a park area along a different part of the shoreline, and as I waited for the sun to drop, I got a series of shots in fading light. Thanks for your kind comment and for stopping by!

      Thanks, Cornelia! However, truth told is I’d like to brighten some more localized spots and increase the contrast between the foreground and the Säntis peak in the background. 🙂
