Inside the castle of the former king of Saxonia. To the right, you can see the colonies of the former royal stud. Now, people using the area to cut short from the river Elbe or the new town on the other side of the river to come to the old town.

Take care!

Not a night at the opera, but the opera at night 🙂

In fall 2015 I was in Dresden with a couple of friends. Besides other iconic buildings, the Semper Oper was also on our bucket list. In this case, I had a monochromatic image in my mind when setting up my gear for this image. I wanted to have a black sky to make the wonderful building pop out. Usually, I take my images of illuminated buildings a bit earlier during blue-hour.

Take care!
