Fotoeins Friday: Paragliders over Neustift in Stubaital

With my base established in Innsbruck, I already spent the morning exploring a little bit of Scharnitz at the Austria-German border. I’m on the 590 bus from Innsbruck to Neustift im Stubaital, and I catch sight of paragliders in the foreground, as well as the dot-silhouettes of several others riding the thermals high up in the distance. Late-spring and summer provides a wealth of ground-, alpine- and aerial-based activities in the Stubaital (Stubai valley).

I made the picture above on 12 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 and the following settings: 1/250-sec, f/16, ISO1000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at as

      Hi, Cornelia. Although I’m less fearful now than when I was a child, I have a moderate fear of heights. But I do agree with you: the sensation of gliding high overhead, and the sensation of finding and riding the vertical thermals in mountain valleys would be a big thrill. Thanks for stopping by and for your comment!

      Hi there! Have you visited (this part of) Austria? If no, I hope you can see the landscape soon for yourself, in winter or in summer. Thanks for your comment and for stopping by!

      Well, it has been years since I last visited Austria (except Vienna) – but I really like a trip to the Alps and I’ll do it sooner or later.
