Fotoeins Friday in Austrian Tyrol: over the state capital

Innsbruck’s north perimeter is bounded by the rock wall that is the Northern Chain mountains or Nordkette. Fortunately, a combination of funicular and cable car is easily accessible in the city to all who wish to reach the Hafelekar summit on the Nordkette. At an elevation of about 2300 metres (7546 feet) above sea level, there’s a sweeping south view over Innsbruck city, Inn river valley, Bergiselschanze (Bergisel ski jump), Europabrücke (Europe bridge), and the mountains beyond.

I made the photo above on 10 May 2018 with a Canon EOS6D mark1 with the following settings: 1/800-sec, f/16, ISO500, and 24mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-leL.

Fotoeins Friday in the Alps: Serles (Innsbruck)

From the centre of Innsbruck, visitors who want to go up the vertical stone wall of the Nordkette mountains ascend first to Seegrube, followed by the final “step” towards Hafelekar. The views under clear skies open up north and south. The image here faces south over the city of Innsbruck and across the Inn river valley to the Tux Alps at left and the Stubai Alps at right, with the latter’s presence prominent with Serles (‎2718 metres / 8917 feet) at upper-right.

I made the photo above on 10 May 2018 with a Canon 6D mark 1 and the following settings: 1/320-sec, f/18, ISO500, 70mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-h1L.
