I spend the last few days in Basel in Switzerland, and while I did not take that many photos, I did few. So let’s do today a bit of a more abstract photo. This one is of the Messe Basel New Hall which is very close to the city center. This building has this huge hole in it, that you can stand under. And that’s what I did. I used the 12mm lens, pointed it straight up, and somehow managed to align it pretty well. Maybe not exactly centered, but not far from it.
This is a blend of three exposures. Blended in Photoshop. Most of the edits were just to remove the tram cables I caught on one of the sides of the photos, as it is a really wide shot.
Looking at the photo, I really though how nice it would have been if a plane flown through while I was taking it. Of course that would not be possible, as the airport is quite far away. But Photoshop can help. I did not have a photo of a plane though, so I used one from Pexels, a site where you can get free to use stock photos. You can get the photo I used from here.
I spend only one day in Bern a few years back, and the whole day was crazy sunny. That’s not really my preferred time to take photos. My eyes are a bit sensitive to strong light and it’s just not comfortable for me. But as I always say, once I’m there why not take some photos anyway. Too bad I don’t like the ones I took from the tower you can see on the left here. The view was great, but the timing was off.
Today’s photo is a panorama I took while crossing the Kirchenfeld bridge (Kirchenfeldbrücke). The sun was behind me to the right, so it made the city looking very bright with some very dark shadows. This is a two shot panorama, edited and merged in Photoshop.
After the yesterdays city photo, how about we go back into the nature with the today’s one. I went back into my huge photo library (my Lightroom catalog show that it’s over quarter million, exactly 276 733 photos :)) and selected a photo I took under the Matterhorn in 2014. Funny how it still feels like only yesterday.
This is a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop. It’s takne in the area round Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps. Matterhorn is a bit to the left of this view.
I almost forgot how many years already passed from my trip to Zermatt in Switzerland. I was there in the autumn of 2014. How the time flies. But today I will look back with a new photo, not directly from Zermatt, but from a town on the road to Zermatt. This is, if I’m not mistaken, the town of Stalden. It must be quite nice to live so in the mountains, I would just not want to try to go anywhere during the winter :)
This is a two shot vertorama, combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop. Actually, I did not take this as a vetorama, as at that time I did not do so many of them, but since I used the same settings for both photos, I just combined them anyway :)
