Alles Neu | Berlin, Germany

As you may have heard, Berlin is an eternal construction site. Even better when something is finally declared open as it was with the new metro station Brandenburger Tor. Up to this point, there are only 3 stations of the new metro line U55 opened. As for the design of the new stations I was very positively surprised and am curious of the other stations that should be finished within the next ten years.

The Champagne Bar was set up for the Berlin International Film Festival in the Sony Center at the Potsdamer Platz in Berlin. I never made it before to the Berlinale Festival, but this time I just decided to go for a walk after work to see if they had some good ideas to decorate the city. In general I can highly recommend strolling through Berlin in the time of the festival. There are some special attractions which can pep up normal photos.

Fresh Snow in Berlin, Germany

How often did I walk by those two houses and how often did I think “Hey man, somehow you must compose a good shot with them”. And yet, the results so far never matched my expectations. But then it happened one evening last winter: Snow!

Oder River in Germany in Autumn Mood. It is the border between Germany and Poland

The new Autumn | Oder River, Germany

I was so focused on the reflections in the water that I actually didn’t realize it until the post-production. The picture was taken beginning of April! In the northern hemisphere that is obviously spring and not autumn. But hey, I’m not unhappy about the added colors by the leaves. They create a pleasant, autumnal mood on the Oder riverbanks.

Greenwich Promenade - Cannon at Lake Tegel in Berlin

Cannon in Tegel | Berlin, Germany

What can I say, the scene was perfect. The water was still a bit frozen, a couple of clouds in the sky and a beautiful red-orange sunset. This cannon at Lake Tegel is a present of the London District Greenwich. Reinickendorf, the Berlin district in which the lake is located, is twinned with Greenwich. Therefore also the whole promenade is called “Greenwich-Promenade”.
