Cologne From Above

Cologne From Above

This is Cologne from above – or at least the part where you can see the Cathedral, Hohenzollern Bridge, the river Rhine and the Central Station to name but a few.

Today’s picture is inspired by my series called Essential which I created back in 2010 (also to be found on my Portfolio Page) and which long time followers might remember.
This time I chose a different composition though.
In the next days I am going to post an alternative version on my Flickr page.

Cologne at Night

Cologne at Night

These are the Cologne Cathedral and the Hohenzollern Bridge at night.
Night shots are fun, especially when you carry a tripod with you.
I didn’t – mea culpa. Luckily I could improvise by putting the camera on a wall.
Although it turned out well, the moral of the story is: don’t forget the tripod…
You should definitely click to view it in a higher resolution.

I like to make macro pictures that are not sterile, but more pleasing to the eye.
This one was taken again with my Sigma macro lens (105mm 2.8) on my Nikon DSLR.

No post-processing at all on this one. Click to enlarge for more details.

I took this series on our vacation to Croatia this summer.
To be honest, this is one of those cases where you cannot entirely “forget the camera”, as you need one which offers decent continuous shooting capabilities.

The slideshow above shows the entire series of 11 pictures, below you find a selection of it – click to enlarge.

As you can imagine I will show you some impressions from Croatia in the coming weeks/months, so stay tuned.

Thanks a lot to my good pal Chris for performing this nice header and giving me permission to show it here.
