They decided to give the reign over Austria, Bavaria and today´s Czech Republic to themselves. Actually you have the view over those three countrys from the top and the chairs are still there, (maybe) cast in Stone...noone knows

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo on a really cold saturday night on a hike with a friend on Mt. Dreisessel, Bavaria. Actually i was after a good milkyway shot and walking to another spot. But when i turned around the fog came up with the moon in the background so this was the shot to go for! I was lucky because 5 mins after this shot the shutter of my lens froze and i had to go back home.
Time
Somewhere around 10 pm in December 2016
Lighting
30s, f 3.5
Equipment
Nikon D700, Nikon 20mm lens, tripod, 1 litre of tea with rum, cigarettes
Inspiration
Moonlight and fog at night is always scary enough to be inspiring
Editing
First i tried to get a coloured Version of this shot, but it didnt work out very well. So i tried to go for black and white which i didnt like either but better Finally i just gave some soft blue to the shadows, and a warm soft red tone to the lights. Everything was processed in Lightroom 6.
In my camera bag
Its always the same at the moment. I only got 1 camera and use 1 lens. I have also another 35-70 mm but i would only use it for portraits which i dont actually do yet.
Feedback
I new to photography so i dont want to give any advices haha
