I have visited Basel numerous times but don’t have as many photos of this lovely town as I would like to have. Recently Bev has shared some photos which reminded me my visits there. Scrolling through TrekEarth gallery from Basel I noticed that one of my favourite spots there, Barfuesserplatz, is not represented. The name of the square refers to the church located at this square which was converted to a museum (Historisches Museum Basel) but was once a Barfuesserkirche, taking this photo I had it actually behind my back but the highlight is actually this view and not the church. Barfuesserkirche means in German a church (Kirche) of Barefoot Carmelites.

I am struggling recently with the brightness of photos. When I prepare photos in the evening and watch them during the day, they are too dark. It is all these screens which are changing the brightness according to the available light. This photo I did a bit brighter than I would normally do to compensate for it.
