The story behind the image
A weekend trip brought us to the awesome Lebenberg Schlosshotel in Kitzbühel, Austria. During the daytime we explored the town and surroundings, and after an awesome dinner we enjoyed the fabulous view into the valley and across the town from the balcony of our room.
All the more we were surprised when fireworks began to explode over the town center. I reached for the tripod and camera and guessed the settings. And I tried to get the rhythm of the explosions so I could capture a major explosion over the town.
Yep. An exposure time of 10 seconds did the trick (at f/11 and ISO 400). What a beautiful shot. I love it.
