After already showing you the Hamburg from above blogpost this week is about the Elbe from above. We started our one hour flight at at the tiny airport of Uetersen, about an hour northwest of Hamburg by car.

What better way to start a weekend than a flight about your hometown with two very special airport approaches.

I search my image library from time to time to find inspiration for new blogposts. When you archive pictures of your hometown for quite some years it is fun to see what you can come up with. I wanted to do another Hamburg blogpost and I found the river Elbe in quite some pictures. The river Elbe is the lifeline of the city. It starts in the Czech Republic and ends roughly 130 km from Hamburg in the North Sea. With its 1094 km it is No. 12 in length in Europe and along the 100 longest rivers in...

Ok, it was not the last light of 2016 - but I came close. I went for a stroll around the harbour after finishing work for 2016 on December 30. Barely made it for sunset at Baumwall metro station and at least catched the second to last light in 2016. I love the architecture of the new installation for flood control around. It is white, clean and modern and the stairs make it way more accessible than the previous installation. I also walked down to the Überseebrücke to enjoy the view towards...

I work in the middle of the city and I usually take an hour for my lunch break. I had to work between Christmas and New Year's Eve and decided to take the camera along lunchtime. Took the metro U4 - which is the newest in Hamburg - and stopped at HafenCity Universität. Look what colours I came up with.

After seven years of building and ten times the planned costs the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg opens on January 11, 2017. It will hopefully serve the Hanseatic city as one of the best concert halls in the world and definitely as an architectural landmark in the middle of the Port of Hamburg. I shot this picture in December 2016 during my first time on the Elbphilharmonie plaza. This picture even got featured on Instagram by @Elbphilharmonie and received way more than 1.300 likes. A few weeks...

Inspired by a Youtube video (German only) of the beautiful Pietzmoor at Lüneburger Heide I decided to go there for a Saturday night sunset and blue hour. The famous Lüneburger Heide is an hour south of Hamburg and a manmade cultural landscape. Besides the "Heide" (heather) you have some spots where "Torf" (peat) was cut in former time. The biggest still existing peat spot is Pietzmoor near the town of Schneverdingen (find location and description here). There is an almost square shaped...

It is good to plan your trip to Neuwerk well in advance once you want to walk to the island during a summer weekend and stay there over night. We did so mid June and started our tour on a Sunday morning. You either use your worn out sneakers or go barefoot through the tidal flats. The curvy track is about 12 km and it takes you less than three hours. You have to cross some tidal inlets that will reach up to your knees. Starting in Cuxhaven, Niedersachsen, you arrive on the island of Neuwerk,...

Exactly one year ago I had the chance to join one of the largest container vessels in the world on the Elbe river. I made a short video to give you an idea of what it is like to spent the night on the river and come back to the Port of Hamburg during sunrise.

I love long exposures and shooting on tripods. Every other year Hamburg features the Blue Port. Parts of the harbour are then lit in blue for about ten days. A perfect time for photographers to take pictures of their city in a different vibe.
