A Picture of a Perfect Day

GF1 mit Lumix 1.7/20mm

Schwäbische Alb, Offenhausen, Sternberg: another perfect day comes to his end.
Last beams of sunlight on the snow-covered landscape, first signs of an upcoming snowstorm in the sky.


  1. Martin, wow! What a sky, and what a great echo of the patterns in the snow. I've got to go look up a map and see where this is.

  2. This snow storm is now here, roughly 300km to the west... cold, not too much snow (yet). This image looks like take with an ultrawide, like 20mm FF lens. I guess it's the curved line in the foreground that makes the eye believe to see a much wider field. Oh yes, and the sky is of an intensity that only too often gets unsatisfactorily emulated via HDR.

  3. Carl and Markus, thanks for your friendly coments!
    The picuture is an example for what Mike Johnston called the "chameleon" property of the "normal" lens.
    I cropped the photo from 4:3 to 3:2 - et voilà!
    Astonishingly the dynamic range of the scene was so low that I could encrease contrast a little bit.
    That's perhaps the reason for the HDR-look.

  4. frohe, und vor allem gesunde weihnachten,
