two days after full moon i finally managed to go out together with a handful of photographer friends to try some night shots of our hometown. the intensity of the moonlight was so high (and my lens protection filter probably not clean enough) that i got lens reflections – i never thought this could happen from moonlight.
“padinger alm” is a popular inn over the valley of bad reichenhall, just on the shoulder of mt. staufen, which you see in the background. image quality turns out to be less then optimal when pixel peeping, but the time was short and the purpose of the shots a slide show, so i didn’t bother to always resort to the lowest iso.
I like the giant “ghost” over the city and the overall feel of your image – There seems to be so much mystery in there !!
the branches close perfectly this beautiful and peaceful picture… perfect frame !
Exceptional colors in this full moon capture.
These are gorgeous! I love the blue skies and the lights in the night. (I too have flare issues when photographing moons!)
Those are some very nice shots! I agree with JM. I love the ‘ghost’ over the city!
re. the ghost: the mountain to the left is “Untersberg”, and according to the legend, written down in a telltale of the brothers Grimm, emperor Karl (Kaiser Karl) sits right in this mountain and sleeps. Another saga says that emperor Friedrich sleeps there and when he wakes up the end of the world will be there.
So what you see is probably the Imperial Ghost.
BEAUTIFUL !!! what blue blues…wow
Totally breath catching. What a masterful use of light, fog, color… All blends together to a wonderful image. Love it!
I can only chime in – great capture, worth a big print somewhere on a wall!
Despite the lens reflections, images looking real good. ice moon light scene captured!
