Shooting stars over Zurich

Shooting stars over Zurich as seen from Hönggerberg (North side of the city). Despite that light pollution is intense above the city, it was still possible to capture the most intense shooting stars at 15”, f/4, ISO-400. Click the picture to enlarge.

Pictures shot in the night of 12.8.2018 in Continuous Mode with Nikon D800; 16-35 mm f/4 and blended in Photoshop.

How to feel (the) blue without the need of a tripod: the Nikon 16-35 mm f/4 VR

The long awaited Summer painted the city of Zurich with its finest blue.

Can you feel the whispering of the couples walking in the streets of the old town?

Do you hear the chatting of the restaurant guests from the outdoor tables?

People and buildings and sky blend in these nights of forgotten dreams.artborghi-blue-light-zurich-4

The most beautiful time of the year, the longest blue nights did not come unseen:

suck all the marrow out of these nights with greed.

And in case you are just walking around with your camera but not with your tripod, the Nikon 16-35 mm f/4 VR on my D800 made an excellent job. Pictures all shot hand held with times down to 1/3 sec (!) Click to open them full size in a new tab.
