Bundesrat | Berlin, Germany

Bundesrat in Berlin Germany. Illuminated at the Festival of Lights 2013

The German Bundesrat or Federal Council was one of the buildings I’ve been sold on in this year’s Festival of Lights in Berlin. This photo also was taken a day before the Festival was supposed to start. I wandered around between the Gendarmenmarkt and Potsdamer Platz until I came across the enlightened Bundesrat.

The colors changed rather quickly but nevertheless it was possible to shot a few multiple brackets. I think I have around ten more color combinations on my hard drive but this one I like the most as it illuminates every part of the Bundesrat and offers in the same time a wide range of colors.
