Hamburg · 25 February 2017
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...

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.

I really like this different approach of an area that I shot many times before. Since we had the typical December weather...

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.
