Fortress on a Fountain

One of the things I really like about Salzburg is that, at night, they illuminate many of their grandest statues, fountains, towers, fortresses, and buildings. I spent two nights finding the angles that would allow me to capture many different illuminations in one frame. In this image I was able to capture an old horse-bathing fixture in the foreground and the grand Hohensalzburg Fortress high atop the hill behind.

Seadragon this image!

Other comments: I used a pocket tripod to stabilize the camera- still, it wasn't enough to completely remove the shake. The shot is coming from about 8" off the ground.
