This old castle, São Jorge, is likely one of the oldest, historical sites to visit in Lisbon. The hill that Saint George Castle is situated on, was previously inhabited by the Celtic tribe, the Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians and Romans. This site was built in the 10th century as a protection against invading groups; the first walls were built in order to do this. Centuries later, the castle survived through many earthquakes, sieges and even the ever-changing rulers.
This was an unusual spot to capture photos of the Berlin panorama. I had a meeting with a fellow photographer, when it started pouring down with rain and after just a few moments of hesitation, we finally decided to try and take some photos to see what would happen. We made an appointment at Storkower Straße from which you can see the skyline of Berlin; with the TV Tower majestically prevailing the line of the horizon.
No doubt when in Kuala Lumpur, I wanted to capture the typical skyline with The Petronas Towers during blue hour and by turning around 180° degrees – I could just enjoy this beautiful sunset. This photo was taken from one of the balconies of The Sail Building, where we stayed during our visit to Kuala Lumpur. The upper floor was a pure paradise for us – external swimming pools, a gym area and an almost 360° degree view on the cityscape.
There are not many areas in Nicosia that allowed for a real panoramic capture of the city. Fortunately for us, we managed to find one… The Shacolas Museum and Observatory is located on Ledra Street – exactly in the heart of the Southern part of Nicosia in Cyprus. We had to pay an entrance fee, but the views were so worth it. We were able to see the Capital at an almost 360˚degree angle.
From many points in the city, you can see the dark lines of the Montenegrin Mountains – these are typical “elements” for the city skyline. Naturally then, they had to have their “place” shown in my photograph, when I wanted to capture the living area of the capital of Montenegro. I was delighted about the composition of the contrast of nature, politics and our modern days.
