Summer’s Eve at Huckinger See

The days in summer in Germany and Austria are long, almost 16 hours of daylight early in July. Civil twilight only ends at 10pm – plenty of time after dinner for a walk in the forest with the camera.

Some tech notes follow below the photos:


Typically for scenes with a lot of green, the camera chose a white balance that was pretty much off – too cold, and with a much too strong magenta tint. The camera’s white balance logic just wants to compensate for the sheer amount of green it sees, or rather, does not see! :-) In this particular case, I actually like the look this created, because it reduced the sheer intensity of the green, and the magenta cast added a very interesting color effect (especially in the last two photos).
