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.

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 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.

Cologne Triangle


Finally time for an HDR capture.
I have been on a short trip to Cologne and while on the first day the weather was atrocious, I was lucky on the second one. Sun with nice clouds, Cologne abounds in interesting subjects anyway.
The building here is called the Triangle. It has a modern, but very nice architecture (which I might show you soon in the next weeks).
I am going to post a black and white version of this one on my flickr page this week. You can check out my photo stream there for alternative shots I post once in a while.

Another thing: I have finally rebuilt my portfolio page!
You can check it out here. (<- Clicky!)

Hope you like it…

Hi again!

This is the final part of the Netherland series.
Of course, there would have been many more pictures to show, but I did not want to present the usual sights everyone sees when they come to this country. For me it’s more about random impressions, not a comprehensive travel report or virtual sightseeing tour.
This final part has a focus on rural impressions, a flower parade and a Buddhist temple with an Avalokiteshvara shrine (Kannon/Kanzeon for the Zen guys out there – Gassho!).

As always click on the thumbnails below to see larger versions.

Hope you enjoyed this series! You can check out my Flickr pictures for alternative shots btw.

New things to come, so stay tuned.
