Fotoeins Friday in Berchtesgadener Land: Kehlstein south

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).⁣

I made the photo above on 26 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime and the following settings: 1/1000-sec, f/13, 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-h64.

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.

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.

Fotoeins Friday in the Alps: Hallstatt

In north-central Austria, the town of Hallstatt is famous for its long-standing history of salt making, for which UNESCO recognized as World Heritage Site in 1997. The town is “squeezed” between Hallstatt Lake and the Dachstein mountains encircling the lake. Hallstatt can be reached by car and bus, but not directly by train. The tiny train station is on the opposite side of the lake, and a small shuttle boat transports passengers across the lake between train station and town. Aboard the gentle ferry ride at 740am, the vista shown here is framed by Zwölferkogel (1982 metres) and Vorderer Hirlatz (1934 metres) in the background, along with the town’s buildings including the Evangelische Pfarrkirche (Evangelical Parish Church) at right.

I made the photo above on 25 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime and the following settings: 1/250-sec, f/11, ISO2000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-glS.
