FEBRUARY 2006 – After sunset, the remaining light dips the village of Seefeld, Austria, into all shades of blue while a few electrical lights add a cozy and warm orange tone. Photo © by Mark Zanzig/zanzig.com
The story behind the image
In 2006, we stayed for a couple of days in Seefeld, Austria, for skiing. Petra had found an affordable hotel that provided a good view across the village. There had been sufficient snow that winter and the relaxation set in as soon as we entered the region.
However, in the evening our balcony was the perfect place to admire the blue hour of Seefeld. This time I was annoyed that I did not bring the gear but was restricted to the little Sony point-and-shoot we were using at that time. But the resulting image is still good enough for at least being displayed in this blog post.
I really like the dominance of blue colors here which is only broken by the few warm lights from the windows. The Christmas-like decorations – including a large illuminated tree – add to the impression of cozyness in an otherwise cold environment (and it had been very cold!)
