Bastei

The Bastei is a rock formation in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains. It has been a tourist attraction for over 200 years and has inspired numerous artists (e.g. Caspar David Friedrich) until today.

For me personal it is a breathtaking scene and since my first visit about 10 years ago, I wanted to produce a version of this vista on my own. During our last stay in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains, I visited the Bastei several times until I found the scene in my preferred light, which involved getting up early in the morning and waiting for the sunrise.
