First light on the new TS APO Refractor on the most iconic Mountain in Germany (and also, the highest) which is a landmark clearly seen from München on clear days.
This time, specially clear air allows us to see even the summit facilities.
And, if looking closely, also the very cable from the cable car can be seen descending into the Valley, in Garmisch – Partenkirchen.
To achieve the very high quality of this shot, I have used a technique which comes from Astrophotography and helps reduce the noise of DSLR images to an incredible amount: Stacking.
In Stacking, several images are taken at once (instead of a single shot) and combined in any image processing software (such as Photoshop). This removes the statistically random variablity of noise between the pixels and keeps the original object of the image much clearer.
Milan has sent us these pictures of the Italian, Austrian and Slovenian Alps, as seen from the beautiful Slovenian village of Izola, very close to Trieste city.
The photographs shows us a large portion of this important mountainous area rising directly above the Adriatic sea. In order to better appreciate the distant details, all original full-sized photographs have been cropped.
Regardless of whether you are travelling by plane, by car next to Chamonix or doing some trekking 200 kilometers away, it is always a shape to recognize in the horizon, and even more when the day is as clean as this one here.
Beautiful details around the peak we can see in this image: while the surroundings are still covered with shadows, the summit as already met the sun and its orange colors are starting to fill the picture.
I now wonder how amazing it would had been to see this scene from the very summit that day.
From a nice village in the Apenins Mountains in Italy there is a very over the Alps that can be really beautiful. Our great contributor Fabrizio Giudici is located near this magnificient viewpoint and always tries to find the best possible picture of Europe’s highest mountains.
