A change of perspective

A change of perspective

Another image of Salzburg – but from a different vantage point. This photo was taken from a hill called Moenchsberg.

The change of angle gives an overview of the Old Town in Salzburg. I like the way that the Sun’s rays emerge from the clouds.

Castle at sunset #2

Castle at sunset #2

This photo was taken about 15 minutes after yesterday’s. The light had changed quite a bit, but it was still lovely.

I liked the way that the ‘tram lines’ (for electric buses) are evident. It was a warm evening and there was a relaxed feeling in the city – as you can see from the faces of the (slightly blurry) couple at the bottom right.

There’s a wee theme to the next few entries. The photos were all taken on the same evening – our final evening in Salzburg.

There was a lovely sunset and the light was gorgeous. It’s that simple. This one was taken from the Kapitelplatz. To the left of this shot, people were sitting watching an open air cinema.

This is a simple conversion of yesterday’s image.

I definitely prefer this one. It seems a bit crisper to me. Strangely, I didn’t notice the crane (just above the roof in the foreground) until I’d converted the photo to black and white. Maybe I should pay more attention to detail.

While wandering through the castle, I stumbled on this view. I loved looking across the valley, to the mountains.

It’s not the best photo I’ve taken. In addition to my inadequacy, the window was quite dirty on the outside. I removed some of the spots when processing, but the streaks were beyond me.

Still, it captures the essence, which is what photography should do (in my opinion). And it gave me an image to play with.

Ready-ish, aim a bit, fire

Ready-ish, aim a bit, fire

The title of this entry popped into my head when I spotted this cannon in the Hohensalzburg Festung (castle). It’s a phrase that I’ve heard Michael Bungay Stanier use (in a completely different context). To my untrained eye, it looked like the cannon was aimed straight at the cathedral. Perhaps, a bit more care was needed here!

Photography doesn’t have to be serious all of the time. Leave room for some whimsy.
