Around sunset – view from Kastanienallee / Zionskirchstrasse to the church Zionskirche in Mitte. The silhouette looks great against the yellow, orange and blue skies – the sunset almost looks as if the skies were on fire.
This picture of Gerndarmenmarkt was taken on a beautiful summer night – or late evening. We were basically rushing to a gallery opening at Lindenstrasse – so the photo is a bit wonky. But anyways – i think it caught the moment quite well. It was warm and calm and people were just hanging out on the street, on squares – and even on Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin Mitte.For me this was quite a special occasion.
On the left you can see the Berlin Konzerthaus (“Concert House”) and on the right you see the Französischer Dom (“French Dome”).
Berlin weather got quite nice in the last couple of days: blue skies, only very few clouds.
This red construction crane is currently situated in Oderberger STrasse in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg. If you look closer, you may see a plane passing by…
The river Panke is probably one of the most under rated Berlin sights – but it has its beauty. In this photo for example the Panke is nicely reflecting the blue skies – and a chimney. I like it.
A HDR image of the French Cathedral at Gendarmenmarkt as seen from its backside on a sunny day.
In German the French Cathedral is called Französischer Dom – the term is German for “French Cathedral”, but in this case (as also in the case of the Berlin Dome and the German Dome) the term refers to the French word for English “dome” and not to a cathedral. Neither church on Gendarmenmarkt was ever the church of a bishop.
In case you want to license the image you’ll find it here in the stock section.
Waiting – looking at the red curtain of Deutsche Oper, Berlin.
In Prenzlauer Berg the “Administrative Office for Citizens” (Bürgeramt / Bezirksamt Pankow Prenzlauer Berg) is located at Fröbelstrasse – a group of old brick buildings, that used to be a hospital. And this red brick chimney used to be part of the hospital too.
The HDR effect is a bit harsh, but – still – i liked the photo somehow. So here it is.
