View from the bridge Jannowitzbrücke towards the TV Tower – last Saturday night – or actually early Sunday morning – in the middle of the night. The TV Tower and the buildings by the water are reflected in the river Spree. Winter in Berlin can be rather dark, when there is neither snow nor ice around.
Lucky us – we were invied to a New Year’s Eve party with access to a rooftop terrace – or at least a terrace with a view to the rooftops of the surrounding buildings. So we basically saw and enjoyed the neighbors’ fireworks with all the comfort you would expect: a glass of sparkling wine (actually it was Champagne), a few couple of dear friends to chat with – and no fear of getting hit by fireworks. Greatness.
I took this photo on a trip to the country side in the North of Germany, visiting my parents. At my parents’ place there is this rather old and rather small size but yet very functional astronomical telescope. Since it was the weekend before the Super Moon / full moon of November 14th, we decided to take a closer look at the moon. Impressive it was. I then also managed to take a few snapshots with my iPhone. So the quality of the full moon photos may not be very good, but still – I like them a lot.
