After visiting Königsee for the first time in 2007, it took me many years, until the fall of 2015, to get back to this beautiful wonderland. Because of the photography projects, I have been here eight times in just two and a half years. The lake and surrounding have different atmospheres due to the changing seasons. So even though I come often, I have different feelings every time.
If you visit here in the summer, the greenery of the lake is reflected on the blue-green lake, which makes this scenery unrealistic. The air is fresh and sweet, making people feel happy. When visiting Königsee in the autumn, you see the charming golden scene everywhere, which makes people smile unconsciously. It is a unique experience to order a cup of coffee or tea and sit outside on the St. Bartholomä while watching the scenery. The visit in the winter really made me see the fairyland on earth. The snow-covered image of the Watzmann (mountain) is reflected in the chilly lake, showing an exquisite appearance. If the snow is abundant and extends from the mountains to the lake, then this is the perfect view of the winter.

In the past, I took photos with my professional cameras in the Königsee. This time, I cooperate with bitplay for the mobile photography which allows me to capture more exciting moments with my iPhone. The filter of the Premium HD wide-angle lens makes the scenery of Königsee more visible and outstanding.
I mentioned in my last article, Discober H.K. with bitplay : The “Premium HD Wide Angle Lens” has a focal length of 18mm; it fits all scenes such as landscape, cityscape, interior or architecture photos. The images look different when using the iPhone and bitplay lenses and photography accessories to take pictures of the Königsee.
Also, I also use the iPhone to film during the trip of Königsee. The greatest convenience for taking pictures and videos with a mobile phone is to shoot with a device. It was more difficult to exchange between a camera and a mobile phone. Now it’s a matter of switching functions. It’s delightful to view videos directly on a mobile phone after editing. This straight video mode also matches the trend of most social media users watching on mobile phones. Take a look at the video below and enjoy the beauty of Königsee.
Premium HD Wide Angle Lens / HD廣角鏡頭
在上篇文章Discober H.K. with bitplay中寫道：Premium HD廣角鏡頭的焦段落在18mm上，不過卻沒有一般廣角鏡頭讓畫面四周景物變形的情況發生，非常適合在「拍攝大景」、「室內建築空間」、「都市街景」，或是「拍攝者與被拍攝物之間距離過短」的情況下使用。而國王湖這座超級大景的氣勢在iPhone與bitplay鏡頭與攝影配件搭配下，成像的確顯得與眾不同。

Following, I share with you the images I took with my iPhone and bitplay lenses and accessories. Because of the fresh air, the quality of the photos looks better than before. It seems like we can penetrate the images directly to the lake. Are you also a mobile phone shooter? Do you like to take photos with your mobile phone, but the quality of the smartphone limits you? You can try to shoot with bitplay lenses and its photography accessories, which will change your impression of the mobile photography. And enjoy the fun of photography.
