Fotoeins Friday: over the edge at Nebelhorn (Bayern 100)

I don’t ski nor do I (snow)board; I have my ankles and knees to thank for that. However, any perspective whether it’s personal or geometrical deserves recognition.

At Höfatsblick (1932 metres / 6339 feet) under the Nebelhorn summit, there’s a restaurant and many are lying out on deck chairs getting their sun on. These two skiers seem to linger at the edge of a downhill slope with the Allgäu Alps looming in the distance beyond. Timing is everything, and I press the shutter button as one remains still while the other proceeds downhill.

November 2018 is the 100th anniversary for the declaration of Bavaria as “free state” (Freistaat). I made the picture above on 5 March 2017 with the Canon 6D, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/20, ISO500 and 65mm focal length.

Fotoeins Friday: winter activity on Nebelhorn (Bayern 100)

Above the Bavarian mountain town of Oberstdorf among the Allgäu Alps is Nebelhorn mountain. Skiing, snowboarding, hang gliding are available on the mountain summit (2224 metres / 7297 feet), as well as additional snow runs near the cable car’s two intermediary stations.

The view shown faces southwest with the “flat slanted ridge” structure called Hoher Ifen in the background at centre. Oberstdorf is prominent as the southern most town in Germany, is host to a large ski jump and European championship-grade skating facilities, and is also home to various German athletes who have participated at recent Winter Olympic Games.
