Fotoeins Friday: February Fosanacht, group gathering

(26 February 2017.)

It’s a winter weekend afternoon, and despite the lack of precipitation, those gathered outside gravitate to huts and shacks offering drinks and snacks; note how some are dressed in costume. (I’m almost feeling nostalgic for pre-pandemic gatherings.)

In 2021, Carnival season in southern Germany, known as Fasching / Fosanacht / Maschkera, will occur in February. Key dates include Weiberfastnacht/Unsinnige Donnerstag (crazy Thursday) on 11 February, Fastnachtssonntag (Carnival Sunday) on 14 February, Rosenmontag (Shrove Monday) on 15 February, and Aschermittwoch (Ash Wednesday) on 17 February.

I made this photo on 26 February 2017 with the Canon EOS6D mark1, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/14, ISO5000, and 105mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as
