Let it snow

Nuremberg Old Town in the Snow
2 sec | f/8 | ISO 250 | 31mm

“Let it snow” is a pop song from 1945, mostly played during the Christmas season, written and composed by Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne. Sung by many, the probably most popular version of this song is by Dean Martin. And a most fitting song for today, December 1st 2020, as the Streets of Nuremberg are covered by the first snow of the season. How is that for a winter clich√©? And now I’m dreaming of a white christmas ūüôā

This photograph of half timbered houses in the Old Town below the Imperial Castle was taken with my Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the mZuiko 12-100 F/4. Image specs are 2 secs @ f/8 and ISO 250, with a focal length of 31mm (equals 62mm in full frame). Camera was on a tripod. RAW conversion and post processing in Lightroom CC

Have a great Tuesday! And keep warm and stay safe!

A magic view

Nuremberg Old Town Skyline by Night

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!

Rainy Streets

Winter is here

Tiergärtnertorplatz
5 sec | f /11 | ISO 200 | 12mm

Last week, the first snow has graced the Streets of Nuremberg , a first sign that winter is here. Not that it stayed very long, gone quickly after a rain storm – we will be back to 12 degrees celsius next week, probably able to sit at those tables again. But it helped getting into the right winter mood. Five more work days until a nice long break well into the new year.

I took the photograph of the historic Tierg√§rtnertorplatz (with the famous Albrecht D√ľrer’s House in the center) in Old Town Nuremberg with my Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the fabulous 12-100mm F/4 allround zoom. I had to use a tripod to be able to shoot at f/11 and ISO 200, resulting in a five second shutter speed. RAW conversion and post processing in Lightroom Classic.

I’ll be using this weekend for some gear cleaning and checking for new firmware for my Olympus camera bodies and lenses. Both is needed once in a while and should not be neglected.

Wish you a great Saturday!

Nuremberg Explored (5) – Angelic Salutation

EngelsgrussIt’s been a while since my last episode of “Nuremberg Explored”. ¬†With the¬†introduction to the “Angelic Salutation” by famous German sculptor¬†Veit Stoss ¬†from 1518, that is one of the masterpieces in Nuremberg’s St. Lorenz Church, I’ll send you in a hopefully sunny weekend. For facts about this artwork and some more photos from inside St. Lawrence continue to read after the jump….

Weißgerbergasse

The Wei√ügerbegasse is a scenic alley in Nurembergs historic old town north of the Pegnitz River. Since medieval times home to the profession of the tanners (hence the name,¬† tanner or skinner =Gerber), the ensemble of 20 half timbered houses (Fachwerkh√§user) has survived the bombings of WW II, has been lovingly restored¬†and is now part of Nuremberg’s Historic Mile (will do a separate future post about that).¬† Continue reading “Nuremberg Explored (2)”

A couple of firsts in todays blogpost…the start of a new series (Nuremberg Explored) as well as the¬†first guest photo featured on Streets of Nuremberg.

I’m the only one seriously into photography in the family, despite my efforts to get my kids more involved. My wife Birgit used to shoot a lot as well, but lately she’s dropped the cams and is snapping away at what she likes with her iPhone 6splus. And when we’re out all together I’m frequently picked on because I take so much time for my¬†picture taking ¬†that the rest of the gang complains they need to wait too long before I’ve captured what I want to capture.
