Basel Nights

There was a full-moon on Friday and the forecast was clear (I should read the last entry again!), so I wanted to take the opportunity to capture the moon over the city. I tried to plan with TPE to find out the time that the moon would be in the place that I wanted for the shot. The time and place where correct but I hadn't thought about the elevation. The moon was higher than I needed it to be, which in the end didn't matter too much, as the clouds were covering it. 

I still took the chance to take some more pictures and work on cityscapes and low light images.

I was surprised about the amount of people around near the Münster especially tour guides with torches that felt the need to shine them directly at my lens! Apart from that, most people tend to disapear at night with a 30 second exposure.

These first two images are of Basel Münster. They where taken with a Samyang 14mm, so the f-stop isn't recorded in the metadata.

The next two are from the Mittlere Brücke in the centre of Basel. These were also taken with the Samyang 14mm.

I'm not that keen on these images and I think that I need some more practise with this lens at night

This image seems to have a light shake to it, it could have been cause by the two tram going by.
