Explosion in the sky

Explosion in the sky
1/60 sec | f/5.6 | ISO 640 | 28mm

Another landscape image on this street photography blog, but I couldn’t help posting after seeing this explosion in the sky just about an hour ago. After a warm summer day spent working for the job that pays the bills, I had taken my convertible for a small trip around the countryside near our house. Just in case, I brought the Leica M with the Elmarit 28mm. Then I saw this amazing Cumulonimbus popping up at 9:30pm local, lit by the setting sun. I got home in time. Now, the heavy T-Storm is raging outside. More explosions in the sky….

Image specs 1/60 sec @ f/5.6 and ISO 640. RAW conversion in Lightroom Classic. I did expose for the sky and opened up the shadows of the foreground.

Weather Check

Weather Check
1/125 sec | f/4 | ISO 3200 | 90mm

I have no idea if the guy staring into his cellphone was checking the weather. But a weather check for the Streets of Nuremberg would have shown a cold front passing through today, with heavy rains and a significant drop in temperature. Was definitely time for a warm jacket for everyone out and about.

I was playing around with my Elmarit F/2.8 90mm on the Leica M. Image specs 1/125 sec @ f/4 and ISO 3200. The high ISO is not a problem for the M, and the monochrome images directly out of camera are quite beautiful. The backdrop shows the historic Heilig-Geist-Spital with the River Pegnitz passing underneath.

Hope you’re having a great weekend.

Mayday

Corona Schwäne

Happy Mayday from the Streets of Nuremberg. A strange first day of May it was. Covid-19 lockdown, stormy weather, empty streets – far away from the usual cheerfulness at the start into what we Germans call the “Wonnemonat”. Dearly in need to see something else than our home and the supermarket, The Significant Other and I headed downtown to the Wöhrder See, where the Pegnitz River is dammed to a lake just before entering the city walls.

Spring Cleaning

Marcus Puschmann Self Portrait

March is upon us, and spring is coming to the Streets of Nuremberg. And it’s really time for it. Albeit, how much we will be able to enjoy it will also depend on how things will continue with the new coronavirus. And it doesn’t look good these days. The latest company directive is to avoid all travels, and everyone who can work from home should work from home for the time being (affecting me as well). And I just learned from TV news that Italy has put the entire nation under lockdown, that means 60 million people. And who’s to decide if that’s insanity or necessary precautions. But, coming back to the Streets of Nuremberg, well into the fourth year of existence of this blog, I thought it was about time for some needed personal spring cleaning.
