Erfurt Christmas Market – the other side

Not sure if you have ever heard of the Erfurt Christmas market. Main reason why it is that popular in this region is the magnificent background, provided by the impressive cathedral and the chuch next to it. Both are located on a hill with the Christmas market at its feet.

If you saw a guy with a tripod standing between all the folks there and trying to capture photos – yeah, it was me. Even the long exposure time did not get the photo rid of people standing in the frame.

Erfurt Christmas Market. (another approach)

I took a similar photo in December 2011 (link). Last time i placed the camera on one of the steps which lead up the the Erfurt cathedral. This time I went there on purpose, carrying a tripod with me. I probably will do that again once we see snow at the christmas market. Anyway a nice outcome of that activity.

Spring 2015, take two

Last week spring has finally arrived! Got a hint on Twitter about a spot with medium high cherry trees in Erfurt. Needed to capture the scene and went there in the later afternoon. When we got there, it seemed we were not the only ones who had that idea. Anyway, we found a spot among the others and took a few pictures.

It looked awesome. Just like a small pink forrest. The perfect location to work with the new Pentacon 29 2.8 lens.
