Inside the Cologne Triangle

Inside the Cologne Triangle 1

Another one from the Cologne Triangle which I showed you from outside a few months ago.
These pictures were taken from the lounge in the reception area.
I did not know at that time that this building is actually used for some parts of the German TV show Deutschland sucht den Superstar (which is called “Pop Idol” in the UK). They do the casting in one of the top floors.

Here you can see the view you have from its roof.

Rheinauhafen Cologne

Rheinauhafen 1

And yet another one (actually two) from my trip to Cologne. There is a lot to see there as you probably can imagine right now.
This is the Rheinauhafen, an urban regeneration project along the river Rhine.
This used to be a commercial harbour developed during the 1880s.

These are HDR pictures, hope you like them. You should definitely see them in a larger format (just click on them).

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.
Best viewed large (click).

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.
