Photographer's Note

I mentioned before that I would like to have in my TrekEarth gallery 100 photos from each country in which I had a chance to live. Indeed, I have here already 100 or more photos from Poland, Ireland, UK and USA. Sometimes it is not easy if the time I lived there was in the pre-digital era. For example, while in Germany I lived in Erlangen (1 year), Munich (3.5 years) and Lubeck (2.5 years). In Erlangen I had just a cheap quality compact camera. In Munich I bought my first analog SLR (EOS 300). In Lubeck I bought my first digital camera (EOS 350D). In the consequence I have more photos here from Lubeck than from Munich, even though I liked Munich so much more and I spent there altogether more time. With this photo I managed to reach the number of 100 photos from Germany in my TrekEarth gallery.

This photo presents again the spires of Dom, the cathedral of Lubeck from yet another point of view. The old towns in Germany are indeed very well lit by night which makes them great subjects for blue hour photography. It is not always the case in the UK. May be they are more environmentally friendly here. However even though the main subjects are well lit, there are always some narrow dark streets. This photo was taken from one of them. The Dom towers made lovely silhouettes but I trimmed the excess of the black street, turning to a bookmark format.
