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!

Christmas Romance

Romantic Christmas
1/60 sec | f/1.8 | ISO 1600

After yesterdays moody Christmas tree image I felt the need to post some real Nuremberg Christmas romance. It shows the Christmas tree on historic Tiergärtnertorplatz, once more with the birth house of Renaissance Super Star Albrecht Dürer in the background. Definitely one of the more romantic views of my city.

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 Tiergärtnertorplatz (with the famous Albrecht Dürer’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!

OM-D E-M1X High Res Shot

Riverside | Nuremberg | 2019

One of the great features of my new Olympus OM-D E-M1X is the ability to use sensor shift technology to increase the image resolution by combining multiple shots. This function is called High Resolution Photo (also referred to as High Res Shot or HRS). The camera takes 8 (in handheld mode 16) consecutive images and moves the sensor by half a pixel between each shot. The 8 pictures are then composited to create the final output. The resolution is 80MP for RAW and 50MP for JPG (when using a tripod) or 50MP for both RAW and JPG when shooting handheld.

We’ve got a lot of snow in the past days, although today the rain has washed away most of it. When it started to snow on Thursday, I decided to put camera bag and tripod in the car to head downtown for some after office shooting of the snow-covered old town. For more photographs and my weather induced challenges continue after the jump… Continue reading “Winter on the Streets of Nuremberg”

Rhapsody

PB170203

As I have stated many times on this blog, one of the most important aspects of my blogging is getting in touch with people from all over this planet. Since starting the “Streets of Nuremberg” nearly three years ago, I have connected with many wonderful people. And with some, even virtual friendships have developed over time. One of them is Rhapsody. Now living in far away Nevada, she has her roots in a small village about an hour by car from Nuremberg. We’ve been talking about meeting each other in real life for quite some time. Now that she came back to Germany to tend to family matters, we finally turned virtual plans into reality. Yesterday I drove out to pick her up and take her to nearby historic town of Schwäbisch Hall, where we did spend a splendid day together, a day full of great talks, photography, sightseeing and enjoying some local beer and food. For the photos of our trip continue after the jump…. Continue reading “Rhapsody”

Merry Christmas from the Streets of Nuremberg

Christmas under the Castle | Nuremberg | 2017

To everyone out there, but particularly to all the many wonderful people I’ve had the blessings to meet (at least virtually) during my first two years of blogging on the “Streets of Nuremberg”, I wish a peaceful Christmas and much love and laughters together with your family and friends.

Merry Christmas from the Streets of Nuremberg
