Through the Golden Alleys | Dresden, Germany

Thanks to the “Olympic promotion” by the German Railways, I was able to visit many German cities in February. Whenever the German Olympians won a gold medal, I had a free first-class train ride through Germany the next day. Now, in February the weather is of course not always the best, so I always had a look at the weather forecast the evening before. When Germany won the first medal, the weather map didn’t look so good. But over Dresden, the clouds should break up now and again, so the decision was made.

I arrived in Dresden quite early, around lunchtime, but the weather was disappointing. Everything was grey in grey and the city therefore not too photogenic. But well, just visit the Frauenkirche, let the time pass and wait for the blue hour. When it was finally time for the blue hour, I had to run to capture all the sites. I got quite some funny looks pulled on me while running with my tripod through the city, but who cares.

The photos and the subjects were well worth it. On the way back from the Frauenkirche to the opera I already had everything that I wanted captured on memory card and could slow down – until I turned around. Then I saw the dome of the Frauenkirche shine over the golden alleys of Dresden. So just one last photo before running back to the train station…
