Quadriga | Berlin, Germany

Quadriga on Brandenburg Gate in Berlin with blue sky and clouds

The Brandenburg Gate is the most popular landmark of Berlin and everybody knows the Quadriga on top. For a short time it was taken by Napoleon to Paris, but since 200 years it’s located again on its traditional place.

For this photo I had to go a bit through my archive. I took it almost three years ago when I wasn’t that familiar with my DSLR camera yet. Nevertheless I quite like it from the point of composition, so I decided to share it with you now.
