Sharing moments in time…

Köln Cathedral and Strassenbahn Bridge


It wouldn’t be a European River Cruise without Cathedrals so I thought I’d get this post out of my system quickly.  This was taken on our first night and shows the largest Cathedral in Germany alongside a train bridge in the center of the old city.  The Cathedral looks out over the Rhine River and is a spectacular sight – especially at night when the lights come on.  I’ve made several versions of this photo (because I like it..) but I thought I’d post the B&W image here – I think it is a dramatic capture of an iconic scene.

An added benefit of photographing this particular scene was that we ran into another photographer who used to live in Köln and he gave us a great rundown on where to eat and where to enjoy the local brews….

    • Thanks Nora – we had a great time setting up this shot while talking to the (formerly) local photographer. He shared his local knowledge and we gave hime some tips on his next trip to the US.
