A magic view

Nuremberg Old Town Skyline by Night
1 sec | f/5 | ISO 640 | 29mm

Just a quick one today, fresh out of camera. Tonight I climbed the North Tower of St. Lorenz Church, one of the two major city churches of Nuremberg’s Old Town. Even though born in this city, it took me 52 years to make it up this medieval bell tower, from which I had a magic view across the Old Town over to the main square, city hall, St. Sebald Church and the Imperial Castle behind.

I will post more views from the top, but this will have to do for tonight. Taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1X and the mZuiko 12-100mm F/4. Image specs 1 sec @ f/5 and ISO 640, with 29mm focal length. I rested the camera on a bean bag put on the railing of the outside gallery that runs around the tower in lofty heights.

Wish you a fabulous Thursday!

  1. Hallo Marcus,
    oben leuchtet die Kaiserburg auf, links oben Sankt Sebald, und im Zentrum finden sich das Rathaus Hauptmarkt, daneben der Handelsvorstand (Industrie- und Handelskammer) und dahinter das Historische Rathaus, rechts der Turm der Frauenkirche.
    Die magische Aufnahme betrachte ich als Beitrag zur Bewerbung der Stadt Nürnberg als Kulturhauptstadt Europas 2025 ..
    Beste Grüße, Bernd

  2. Thank you for posting not only the beautiful image but also the story behind how you captured it. A bean bag on the railing is such a great idea—and something I wouldn’t have thought of on my own.
