Nuremberg’s Best Sunset

Sunset behind Nuremberg's Imperial Castle
Imperial Sunset | Nuremberg | 2019

Färdder Kärwa
1/80 sec | f/4 | ISO 200 | 25mm

1/200 sec | f/4 | ISO 200 | 100 mm

Taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1X and the mZuiko 12-100mm F/4. Image specs 1/200 sec @ f/4 and ISO 200 and 100mm focal length.

Hope you had a great Sunday as well!

I enjoyed sunshine, pristine beaches, colorful towns and saw about twenty Grey Whales from the shore.
