Köln, Germany – Sunset (HDR)

While in Köln last winter…my goal after work was to head out to this vantage point overlooking the railway bridge with Köln Cathedral in the background.  It has got to be on of the best shots to take in the city.   It was in February…and a bit chilly this nite.  I was here for about 2hours taking shots waiting for the blue hour.  I have posted a shot at that time before.  This was my sunset shot in HDR.    I always love pink skies…the lighting is always magical!    Germany has so many great cities…this is one of the top 5 for sure to visit!
