Back on the 1st page of 500px

It’s always so nice to get on the front page of Flickr or 500px. Really a great way to approach new people who never seen my photos. And the Sunrise at the bridge photo got there yesterday.

Looking from the castle

The Aggstein castle ruins in Austria are really high up. This is taken from there, but I had to zoom in quite a lot (150mm) as normally you would not even see the ship :) Really great that you can get up there with a car and don’t have to walk that much. If you are in the area, it’s great for a visit, even if just for the view.

This is a manual blend from 3 shots, edited in Photoshop.
