Sunny day in Bern

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.

Sunny day in Bern, Switzerland

Interesting place for a restaurant this was, right at the water in the middle of Bern. Makes for a nice atmosphere, but the noise is probably not that welcome :)

This is a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop. I used a 10 stop ND filter here.

I walked quite a lot around the city while I was in Bern, and one of the shots I got was also this one. I went completely down to this little waterfall under one of the bridges and by using a 10 stop ND filter, I bluered the water completely, even in this daytime shot.

Now I’m really really far behind with updating the blog. And not that that’s the only way I’m behind in. Somehow it’s hard to keep up while I’m running around taking photos, and of course having a horrible internet connection everywhere. But now it’s time to start catching up, so here is for you a photo of the Munseter in Bern, Switzerland.
