Fotoeins Friday in Berchtesgadener Land: Kehlstein north

About 10 kilometres southeast from the alpine town of Berchtesgaden, the infamous Eagle’s Nest on Kehlstein is also a destination for those interested in all-encompassing views of the Berchtesgaden Alps (Berchtesgadener Alpen) from the southeast corner of Germany into central Austria. ⁣⁣I described the view south last week.

Shown above is a view north includes the Documentation Centre Obersalzberg (which explains how the Nazis’ claimed Obersalzberg for their own and the construction of the Eagle’s Nest on Kehlstein mountain), Untersberg mountain in the distance at the Austro-German border, and the Austrian cities of Hallein and Salzburg along the Salzach river. Also visible are roads connecting Salzburg and Hallein with Berchtesgaden. This wedge of land was once busy and rich with activities for the “white gold”: there were salt mines (e.g., in Berchtesgaden and Hallein), salt barge transports on the Salzach river, and the sale and exchange of salt for goods.

About 10 kilometres southeast from the alpine town of Berchtesgaden, the infamous Eagle’s Nest on Kehlstein is a destination for those interested in all-encompassing views of the Berchtesgaden Alps (Berchtesgadener Alpen) from the southeast corner of Germany into central Austria. ⁣From near the Kehlstein summit, the view shown here faces south, including Jenner at centre and the Königssee lake below. At upper right is Watzmann, one of the best-known peaks in the area and Germany’s 3rd highest mountain (elevation 2713 metres).⁣

Fotoeins Friday in Berchtesgadener Land: Kehlsteinhaus

About 10 kilometres southeast from the alpine town of Berchtesgaden, the infamous Eagle’s Nest (Kehlsteinhaus) on Kehlstein mountain is a destination for those interested in all-encompassing views of the Berchtesgaden Alps (Berchtesgadener Alpen) from the southeast corner of Germany. Kehlsteinhaus itself is accessed only with an elevator, after a ride on a special bus on a restricted and steep mountain road beginning from the Documentation Centre in Obersalzberg.

Fotoeins Friday in Berchtesgadener Land: Dokuzentrum

Outside of Berchtesgaden, the Documentation Centre Obersalzberg (Dokumentationszentrum Obersalzberg) stands at the location of the infamous Berghof and documents the annexation of the summer resort area of Obersalzberg for Hitler’s sole use in the valley and on the neighbouring mountain of Kehlstein. Seen in this image at upper centre are the Kehlstein mountain and the silhouette of the Kehlsteinhaus (Eagle’s Nest) near the mountain summit.

I made the photo above on 26 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime and the following settings: 1/1000-sec, f/11, ISO 1000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-hez.

Fotoeins Friday in Berchtesgadener Land: Ramsau

Deep in the southeast corner of Germany is the picturesque town of Ramsau, about 15 minutes west from Berchtesgaden. Completed in 1512, the town’s St. Sebastian Parish Church provides a human and transitory counterpoint to the much longer geologic timescale of the surrounding Northern Limestone Alps with an age of about 250 million years. It’s no surprise that the visual church-mountain combination is a popular photographic motif.

I made the photo above on 26 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime and the following settings: 1/1000-sec, f/14, ISO1000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-glI.
