Fotoeins Friday in the Alps: Serles (Innsbruck)

From the centre of Innsbruck, visitors who want to go up the vertical stone wall of the Nordkette mountains ascend first to Seegrube, followed by the final “step” towards Hafelekar. The views under clear skies open up north and south. The image here faces south over the city of Innsbruck and across the Inn river valley to the Tux Alps at left and the Stubai Alps at right, with the latter’s presence prominent with Serles (‎2718 metres / 8917 feet) at upper-right.

I made the photo above on 10 May 2018 with a Canon 6D mark 1 and the following settings: 1/320-sec, f/18, ISO500, 70mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-h1L.

    Interesting glitch that from the WordPress Reader, the image is only a thumbnail. I had to go directly to the page in your blog to see a full view. Don’t know if it’s the fault of my computer or something with WordPress. In any case, it’s a beautiful view of the Alps.

      Hi and thank you, John. There are many WordPress themes, of course; and it’s amazing the Reader does the basic job of showing posts as they’re *supposed* to be seen. For my posts that are full-screen (“single column”) in width, the posts have a top featured photo that are placed in a gallery (in the format for the theme I use). For these posts, I’m aware that the Reader only shows a thumbnail in a summary of posts. For my regular posts (in a two-column format), I often have a featured photo which disappears in the Reader. I understand the Reader can’t be all things to all people, but it’s also a reason why I always recommend images be seen on a large/wide screen, and not on a tiny screen. Yeah, I use Facebook’s Instagram, but often under silent protest. 😅
