Fuji in Europe Part 15 - Sunset in Großgründlach


After the trip to Regensburg, the day was promising a good sunset.  So I convinced my good friend from Hooked on Europe, that we should go out to a field somewhere, not too far.  Well, Großgründlach or Grossgrundlach, is not that far away from Nuremberg, and it proved to be a fantastic spot for a nice sunset.  Unfortunately the sunset wasn't as nice as I was expecting, but then, when relying on mother nature, she usually shines when least expected.  Großgründlach is a quiet little village on the outskirts of Nuremberg.  It's typical German suburb.   I can only wish suburbs in Edmonton looked like that :).  You have all the amenities, with in walking distances, and no hustle and bustle of a big city.  Very beautiful.


This was a perfect time to let the Fuji XT1 shine.  I mounted the Fuji 10-24mm f4, on the camera, and mostly used the articulated screen for the different angles of the shots.  That screen is so nice, when you want to get closer to the ground, among the flowers, yet you don't want to lie down in the damp grass.  Perfect for raising it up above the tall grasses to see what's beyond.  With the Fuji X-Pro1 I usually found myself shooting blind, in situations like these, so this little feature on the XT1 is a blessing.  Another thing, I'm really getting used to the little switch to the XT1, that let's me quickly switch between bracketing shots to single to other modes.  So much nicer than going into the menus of the camera.
