Fotoeins Friday around Lake Constance: Mainau (Obersee)

I’m on a daytrip from Konstanz to Unteruhldingen, which means I’m on the first BSB ferry onto Lake Constance. It’s foggy this morning, but I can see it’ll clear by midday. As the boat heads out on the second leg from Meersburg to Unteruhldingen, I swing around with the long 70-300 lens as golden morning light begins peeking through holes in the fog and illuminating the baroque castle on Mainau island in the distance. It’s a bright punch of pink and cream through a blanket of dark blues and greys.

I made the picture above on 23 September 2017 with the Canon 6D, 70-300 glass, and the following settings: 1/1000-sec, f/14, ISO1000, and 135mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-e8u.

Fotoeins Friday um Ulm herum: Blautopf Blaubeuren

In Ulm, um Ulm, und um Ulm herum

That’s a well-known “Zungenbrecher” (literally, “tongue breaker” or tongue-twister) which translates as “In (the city of) Ulm, around Ulm, and round about Ulm”.

Ulm is located in southern Germany in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg. In the nearby town of Blaubeuren, there is the URMU or Urgeschichtliches Museum with important local archaeological finds highlighting prehistoric human civilization. There is also an unusual deep lake called Blautopf whose waters rise from the deep and appear very blue. The Blautopf is also the source of the Blau river which flows through Ulm’s Fischerviertel (Fisherman’s Quarter) before converging with the Danube.

Blaubeuren is a short 15-minute trip with a regional train from Ulm. From the Blaubeuren train station, there’s a 1.7 kilometre (1.1 mile) walk northeast to the Blautopf. There is also (limited) bus service between “Blaubeuren, Bahnhof” and “Blaubeuren, Museum.”

I made the photo above on 26 September 2017 with a Canon 6D mark1, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/125-sec, f/11, ISO1000, and 24mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-dBS.

Fotoeins Friday um Ulm herum: Fischerviertel and the Blau

In Ulm, um Ulm, und um Ulm herum

That’s a well-known “Zungenbrecher” (literally, “tongue breaker” or tongue-twister) which translates as “In (the city of) Ulm, around Ulm, and round about Ulm”.

Ulm is located in southern Germany in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg. Towards the southwest corner of Ulm’s Old Town is the Fishermen’s Quarter with historic buildings including the Schiefes Haus (Leaning House) which is the building in partial shadow at lower-centre. From this vantage on the Blaubrücke (Blau bridge), the Blau river flows through the Fischerviertel on its way to converge with the Danube a mere 130 metres to the southeast; I’ll show the source of the Blau in the fourth and final installment of Ulm photos next week.

I made the photo above on 25 September 2017 with a Canon 6D mark1, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/640-sec, f/16, ISO1000, and 24mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-dBK.

Fotoeins Friday um Ulm herum: medieval Münster & Mauer

In Ulm, um Ulm, und um Ulm herum

That’s a well-known “Zungenbrecher” (literally, “tongue breaker” or tongue-twister) which translates as “In (the city of) Ulm, around Ulm, and round about Ulm”.

Ulm is located in southern Germany in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg. On the other side of the Danube (Donau) river is Neu-Ulm in the state of Bavaria. After a quick ride on the bus and short walk to the river shore on Jahnufer, there’s this great view of Ulm with the central spire of the Münster (cathedral, 1377-1890 AD/CE) at left and the Metzgerturm (butcher’s tower, c. 1350 AD/CE) at right and subsequently incorporated with the Mauer (city wall, c. 1480 AD/CE).

I made the photo above on 25 September 2017 with a Canon 6D mark1, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/16, ISO800, and 45mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-dBs.

Fotoeins Friday um Ulm herum: Einsteinbrunnen

In Ulm, um Ulm, und um Ulm herum

It’s a well-known “Zungenbrecher” (literally, “tongue breaker” or tongue-twister) which translates as “In (the city of) Ulm, around Ulm, and round about Ulm”. Located in southern Germany in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg, Ulm is where Albert Einstein was born on 14 March 1879.

Next to the Amtsgericht (Magistrates’ Court) is the Einsteinbrunnen or Einstein fountain, a bronze sculpture made by Jürgen Goertz in 1984. The sculpture consists of three parts: a rocket body representing technological advancement hurtling into space with the threat of annihilation by atomic weapons; a snail shell representing nature and wisdom regarding the judgement and control of technology; and Einstein’s head with a mischievous cheeky expression with big eyes and tongue stuck out.

I made the photo above on 24 September 2017 with a Canon 6D mark1, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/320-sec, f/8, ISO2000, and 24mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-dBg.
