Berlin train-station lighting up the sky

Berlin Hauptbanhof (main train station) at Christmas

On a recent Christmas holiday I spent a few days in Berlin. I love that city, the history and changes that this city has gone through in the last 100 years is incomparable to any other city I know of, and the resulting architectural boldness of the city planners is just great.

Sometimes I wonder if someone hasn’t said “well let’s build it we have nothing to loose” and then they just went ahead with the most innovative ideas architects could get together.

Well one night I went walking from Alexander Platz to the Hauptbanhof. It was cold, really cold between -15° and -20° celcius (5° and -5° farenheit) and I was worried about my camera. Working with a tripod in this weather is pretty rough.

However I liked the way the lights of the train-station lit up the sky. I took this photo from pretty far away and the road away plus the lights are two different eye trails, but I think they meet somewhere.  It’s an HDR photo with three photos.

  1. Outstanding! I too love the wonderful flare from the street light as well as the shadowed light emitted from the distant cityscape. I can feel the cold!

  2. This is amazing picture

  3. Agreed. The glare is perfect and whatever the heck is going on in the background with the lighting is awesome.
