A collection of my best guided tours from all over the world
Hamburg · 30 December 2016
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...

Photography Tips · 13 December 2015
I wanted to come up with a small series of pictures done differently. During a recent afternoon photo walk along Hamburg harbour I took my small Manfrotto table tripod (Pixi Mini) with me. It is only 20 cm high and gives a stable, but very low perspective. Every image below is done from this tripod slightly above street level and shoot with the Canon EF 16-35 mm wide angle. I really like this different approach of an area that I shot many times before. Since we had the typical December weather...

After a very sunny day in March 2015 I managed to get to the Harbour Museum Hamburg during sunset. It is located at the "50er Schuppen", a couple of ware houses from the 1950s south of "HafenCity" in Hamburg. You will see who ships were loaded and unloaded back then. The old cranes are especially impressive.

Going westwards along the river Elbe is one of the most scenic walks in Hamburg. This is especially true during sunset since you are walking towards the sunset. I quite like the area at Altonaer Hafen since it is definitely less crowded than the Alster lake walk or the inner city region. You pass the famous Dockland office building which is shaped like a parallelogram. Opposite of the building they left an old harbour crane giving a nice contrast towards the modern glass and steel buildings....
