Sunset in Travemünde


Last Sunday, my mother, one of her neighbors, and I drove to Travemünde as we wanted to stroll around near the water. When we walked back to the car, my phone showed that we walked 16 kilometers. That’s a good distance! Before that, her neighbor invited us to a coffee near the beach but I have chosen a cappuccino as I don’t drink coffee.

The blue image in the gallery above is another photo I shot, the pink one is edited with Lightroom as I thought changing it to pink would work too. You can click on the images to enlarge them. To explain the scene, as mentioned in the title, there was a big ship passing and I captured the lights of it with the long shutter speed. The image is shot with 15 seconds shutter speed with an aperture … Continue reading Long Exposure: Passing Ship In Travemünde
