Fotoeins Friday in the Alps: Neustift im Stubaital

You can’t escape the mountains in Austria’s Tirol: not that I would, because why would anyone want to miss out on any of this natural beauty. An easy trip by bus or tram (Stubaitalbahn STB) from Innsbruck takes visitors into various towns in the Stubai valley including Neustift im Stubaital. Reaching deeper into the valley gets you to Mutterbergalm and up into the Alps near the Austro-Italian frontier. Spring activities in the area include hiking, climbing, and paragliding. This view faces southeast into town with the Catholic parish church (Pfarre Neustift at lower-centre); in the background at left-centre and upper-right are Kesselspitze (2720 metres) and Elferhütte (2080 metres), respectively.

I made the photo above on 12 May 2018 with a Canon 6D mark 1 and the following settings: 1/400-sec, f/16, ISO1000, and 24mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-glY.

Fotoeins Friday: Paragliders over Neustift in Stubaital

With my base established in Innsbruck, I already spent the morning exploring a little bit of Scharnitz at the Austria-German border. I’m on the 590 bus from Innsbruck to Neustift im Stubaital, and I catch sight of paragliders in the foreground, as well as the dot-silhouettes of several others riding the thermals high up in the distance. Late-spring and summer provides a wealth of ground-, alpine- and aerial-based activities in the Stubaital (Stubai valley).

I made the picture above on 12 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 and the following settings: 1/250-sec, f/16, ISO1000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-cXl.

Tirol Tour: short jumps from Innsbruck

As one of nine states within the federal republic of Austria, Tirol is well known not only for all-season access to the Alps, but also for a variety of other attractions.

With transport authorities IVB Innsbruck, VVT Tirol, and ÖBB Austria, Tirol state capital Innsbruck was the base from which I travelled to Alpbach (half-day), Brenner (half-day), Hall in Tirol (half-day), Nordkette (half-day), Scharnitz (half-day), Stubaital (half-day), and Wilder Kaiser (full day).
