Modern Fairy Tales – Königswinter, Germany – Limited Edition Local 13 Series

| 2

As you may have noticed, I have been a bit busy the last few days and had no time to work on any new photos. So I took some time tonight and finally got around to finalize a photo, which I have been working on for quite a while.

We were waiting out there for about an hour for the perfect light to come up. With no shots taken, I almost called it a day, when just before the sun set, the last soft glow hit the trees and castle. It latest for about 2 minutes and I was glad, I had everything set up already. I fired a few brackets away and come back home with what I knew already would be some great shots to process later.

It is a "remake" of one of my all-time favorites on Flickr and my Website <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a>. I struggled with a few things, but once I got into 2:1 panoramic mode, it just clicked and I new, this would work great for this shot.

I think it's a great second addition to my previous shot. Same place, but very different perspective.

Modern Fairy Tales is as of today part of Limited Edition Local 13 Series, meaning I will make only 13 prints – ever. All numbered and signed.

Hope you enjoy the view as much as I do .
