Fotoeins Friday: February Fosanacht, group gathering

(26 February 2017.)

It’s a winter weekend afternoon, and despite the lack of precipitation, those gathered outside gravitate to huts and shacks offering drinks and snacks; note how some are dressed in costume. (I’m almost feeling nostalgic for pre-pandemic gatherings.)

In 2021, Carnival season in southern Germany, known as Fasching / Fosanacht / Maschkera, will occur in February. Key dates include Weiberfastnacht/Unsinnige Donnerstag (crazy Thursday) on 11 February, Fastnachtssonntag (Carnival Sunday) on 14 February, Rosenmontag (Shrove Monday) on 15 February, and Aschermittwoch (Ash Wednesday) on 17 February.

I made this photo on 26 February 2017 with the Canon EOS6D mark1, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/14, ISO5000, and 105mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-jmC.

Crowds line Ludwigstrasse in Partenkirchen, ready to watch the costumed bike race through town to kick off the season’s festivities. Meanwhile, the guy with blue costume and blue sneakers takes a call.

Fotoeins Friday in the Alps: Grainau

An infrequent but sure way to get me up, oot, and aboot in early-morning is if there is good light; if there’s the promise of something sparkly and shiny; and if there’s the promise of a subsequent shot. This image takes place in late-spring at 645am in Grainau, about 15 minutes west from the Bavarian town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen in southern Germany. The St. John the Baptist church and cemetery lie at the foot of the looming Wetterstein mountains. The country’s highest mountain, Zugspitze, pokes out from behind to the right of the church steeple.

I made the photo above on 28 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/10, 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-glP.
