Cologne Cathedral and Skyline at Sunset

When we visited my old school friend in Bonn, it was clear that we had to make a detour to Cologne. I was there already once when I was a teenager, but I think I didn’t see more than the cathedral at that time. The fact however, that I’ve seen the Cologne Cathedral, is not surprising – you do not need to walk more than 100m from the station and you find yourself standing at the holy doors.

This time we had planned a little more time, we now had a full day to explore the city. The pedestrian zone was much too crowded so that we quickly left the center of the city. After a long walk by smaller streets we eventually reached the river Rhine again. And well, what can I say. We only had one day, but I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful sky at sunset.

Get it On Your Wall

Nico Trinkhaus
Sumfinity.com presents the hub for my works. I write about my impressions on my trips and during taking the photos. I try to provide you with insight into my artistic life, but the focus is always with the pictures. It fills me with pride when I see that my photos are sometimes viewed by approximately 150,000 people within 24 hours. I imagine that I can give all those people at least two seconds of pure pleasure. That’s 80 hours of happiness! In a world which is dominated by sad, upsetting and dismaying news, I’m so glad to be able to create a small counterpart.
