My Backyard - Siebengebirge, Germany

Here it is - my new backyard. The sky looked promising just before sunset, so I decided to make my way up the Ölberg in Germany. I thought I have never been up there, until I realized, that I was up there not too long ago but during daylight only. Set up my tripod and stuff and waited for quite a while. As the sun set, two other photographers from Bonn (Pixelelements) joined and we had a good chat for probably an hour until the sun hit behind the thick layer of clouds in the background. Luckily the night wasn't a total failure. I am happy with the result considering the circumstances and the available light.

 

I used a GND 3 stop filter soft and a ND 3-stop filter, which help in creating these amazing colors.

 

Cheers,

André
