Fotoeins Friday: St. Peter & Paul Church, Reichenau

The city of Konstanz is located in southwest Germany on the shores of Lake Constance within sight and ferry to neighbouring Austria and Switzerland. With Südbaden bus 7372 from Konstanz, Reichenau Island is an easy daytrip getaway to beautiful lush and tranquil surroundings. One of the most important historical locations on the island is the Saint Peter and Paul Church. As one of the oldest churches on the island, the original church was built and inaugurated in 799 AD/CE shortly after Bishop Egino’s arrival from Verona. The present-day church was built in the 11th-century at the same location after the original was demolished. In 2000, UNESCO inscribed Reichenau Island as World Heritage Site.

I made the photo above on 22 September 2017 with a Canon 6D, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/400-sec, f/16, ISO500, and 105mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-bM8.
