Sofia city center from Kopitoto TV Tower with 1200 mm
Zoom in on Sofia's city center! This is the view from the platform of Sofia's publicly not accessible TV tower on the city center with a 1,200 mm super tele lens. The shot was done shortly before sunset. Only in this relatively short time span the air is clear enough for such long lenses and distances! Sofia Airport for instance (in the upper right corner of the image) is 15 kms away! The shot was done by George Palov and Michael von Aichberger, supported by Canon Bulgaria, who provided the very best of Canon's gear: Canon EOS R5 and EF 4/600 L IS III + Extender 2x III.
