Germany is a lovely place. This picture was from last week. It was a cold nite and I was staying near the main train station downtown (Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof). I had some time to take a walk and see the sights. I had always wanted to capture a city view nite shot on the rive Main. The walk wasnt bad…about 1 mile. Even at 8 PM on a cold nite, the German people were riding bikes and jogging along the riverside. Both sides of the river have a path to enjoy.
I set up my tripod and used a shutter release. When taking a shot at nite, camera shake can be an issue. Using these options helps out! I used a 3 second exposure and this is the shot I captured! The bridge you see is a walking bridge (no cars). The city of Frankfurt is nice and clean. I feel safe walking anywhere…even at nite. Around the Main Station there are many restaurants and bars. A nice place to visit during the summer! You can sit outside and have dinner on the Rhine and listen to music or even take in futbol (soccer) game on TV!
The beer in Germany is fantastic as we all know and have heard. I travel all around Germany and enjoy Frankfurt as a stop over, but there are many other great places to visit in Germany….Cologne, Munich, Nurnberg, Berlin.
