The Dome
Santa Maria Del Fiore
Florence, Italy, 2017

This is the closest I could get to the center of the dome, Brunelleschi's master piece. It's a crop of a wider 12mm shot.

Did you know, that when they started to build this cathedral, they didn't know how to build the dome? They just started and more than a century later Brunelleschi finished it. He was a goldsmith first and became an architect much later. So in the beginning of the dome construction the sponsors put a more experienced architect in charge at his side to keep an eye on him. Later he took over and supervised the construction of the dome alone.

Santa Maria Del Fiore
Florence, Italy, 2017

Normally I shoot domes from the center, but the way to this spot was blocked, so I chose a different angle.

Orto botanico di Pisa
Pisa, Italy, 2017

The botanical garden in Pisa is one of the very first university botanical gardens in the world, established in 1543/1544. Fostered and maintained up today, it is still worth a visit.

9th Balloon Festival Bonn

It was after sunset and getting darker and darker. For the final balloon glow all balloons returned from their trips and were set up for a light show with music in the dark.

Since the balloons were constantly moving I did not use my tripod and made handheld shots with auto iso and spot metering to catch the balloons while running their burners. The single shots vary from iso 640 to 10k, which let it look like it was bright daylight.
