Fotoeins Friday: Passau Old Town in golden light

13 December 2012.

Every place I visit for the first time is an introduction. That much is always self-evident, but Passau is another example to add to the list.

At the end of my year-long RTW, I’m in Germany and visiting friends in Munich. I hopped on a regional train to Passau for the day. Sitting at the junction of three rivers (Inn, Ilz, and the Danube), Passau lights up under late-autumn sunshine, with even more light reflected from ice forming in the water. It’s obvious I have to come back in summer.

More on Passau here and here.

During my year-long RTW, I made this photo on 13 December 2012 with the Canon 450D, 18-55 kit-lens, and the following settings: 1/800-sec, f/8, ISO400, 28mm focal length (45mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-aj1.

Fotoeins Friday: Heidelberg at night, with the Old Bridge & Old Town

22 November 2012.

I’m in Heidelberg, Germany again during the final stage of my year-long RTW, and while my adopted home looks pretty under sun at the best of times, the city also doesn’t look half-bad under night lights. In the final week of November, the city’s Christmas markets are in full swing after sundown, and I’ve escaped the crowds by walking across the Alte Brücke (Old Bridge) to the north side of the Neckar river. The location provides a well-known vantage point south for this familiar look back (south) at the Castle ruins (left), the Old Bridge (centre), and the rest of the Old Town, including the Heiligeistkirche (Church of the Holy Spirit) at right. At upper-left are the towers on the summit of Königstuhl hill, and at upper-centre are the lights from Schlosshotel Molkenkur.

During my year-long RTW, I made this photo on 22 November 2012 with the Canon 450D, 18-55 kit-lens, and the following settings: 0.3-sec, f/3.5, ISO800, and 18mm focal length (29mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-ahH.
