I recently witnessed an interesting sunset from Weingarten, where the setting sun caused a bright, vertical light streak into the sky. This is not an artifact of the camera but an effect from haze and clouds.
An unordinary sunset, taken at Lake Constance, Germany, using a simple Samsung Galaxy S2 smartphone camera.
On 12th August, 2011, I cought this photo of a falling star during the Perseids. Shooting took place at the Lake Constance with a normal Canon Powershot A640, set to a shutter time of only 10 seconds. Out of 120 shots, one picture kept this rare moment. What are the odds for that?
