In the Beer Garden
After a long day which included 10 hours of driving from Basel in Switzerland to Karlstadt in Germany, it was good to finally arrive at the hotel we were staying at. Situated directly on the River Main, it had a lovely Biergarten (Beer Garden) overlooking the river and the ruins of the Karlburg high on a hill on the opposite bank of the river. At 35 deg C, and after a strenuous day, it was time for a relaxing beer!
I took this photo with my Olympus Pen EP-3, using an Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/4.0-5.6 lens set at 66mm (132 mm equivalent in 35mm language!), exposure at 1/160 sec, f stop 11 and ISO 400. The moderate tele-setting draws the elements of the image closer together, giving an interesting perspective.
