During the yearly Festival of Lights in Berlin it is not so easy to find a good spot. The composition should be appealing, not too many people should cross the photo and it would better be something which wasn’t photographed a thousand times before. Well, I’m certainly not the first in Berlin who takes a shot of the Brandenburg Gate (Brandenburger Tor) together with the sign for the Pariser Platz. But that evening I liked that combination so much that I shot a complete series of the illuminations from there.
The second part of my series Brandenburg Gate / Festival of Lights shows Berlin’s famous landmark in a cloud cover. This is a beautiful display in my opinion as the blue and cloudy sky is a good contrast to the colour of the sandstone.
Now the third, and my favorite, part of the series Brandenburg Gate / Festival of Lights. Bringing all the famous landscapes together and displaying them on the Brandenburg gate in such a colorful way – great job, whoever came up with that idea!
