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.
