The night watch in Dresden

      Hi, Cornelia. I recommend Dresden, especially if you’ll be around Berlin or Prague, or if you’re planning to be in Berlin and Prague. Dresden is about halfway between these two cities, and apart from one recently-built bridge crossing, Dresden is a former UNESCO World Heritage Site, but the city and region have a lot to offer. Thanks again for stopping by, and for your kind compliment!

      So many places to see, so little time to truly cover them all like they all and each so deserve. 🙂 With that said, I have to return to Prague at some point. Cornelia, it’d be great if you returned – are you thinking next summer or winter?

      Hi, Timo. I have been fortunate to have visited twice: one time in early-December and the second time this past April. Although I love the Weihnachtsmarkt, I definitely like being in Germany with warmer longer days and foliage on the trees. Thank you for your kind compliment!

      Hi, Noel. Dresden is a magical place by day or night, in the summer or during Christmas markets. In my opinion, the city did not deserve to lose its UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Thanks for stopping by and for your kind compliments!

      Hi and thanks, Anita. Like many German/European cities, there are no shortage of sites or places as destinations to photograph, by day or at night. Thank you for reading!

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful night shots of Dresden. I know very little about the area, but it looks like a great place to visit in Germany.

    The last time I was in Prague, I hoped to have enough time to make a trip to Dresden, but couldn’t make it happen. Your photos make it look like a very enticing place to visit. Gorgeous, Henry!

      Hi, Cathy. There’s so much to do, isn’t there? And 2.5 hours by train from Prague doesn’t sound like much either. I definitely recommend Dresden! Thanks again for your kind compliments!

      Hi and thanks, Paula! Dresden definitely shows up under sun by day or at night when the city is bathed in the warm glow of artificial lights. 🙂

    This is embarrassing but when I was putting together an itinerary with German Tourism I said I wanted to go to Dusseldorf. So I went there and loved it but only later did I realize I’d meant to say Dresden! It looks lovely. I envy your ability to get good night pictures – mine are always dreadful.

      Hi, Kay. A surprise, but a pleasant one, I would imagine, to discover Düsseldorf on the Rhein. I’m happy to provide additional motivation for your future visit to Dresden. Night pictures require one or a combination of the following: a camera whose detector has good to great low-light performance, steady hands, a tripod, experimentation and perseverance. But it’s the last aspect is one with which most have trouble; I’ve gone and played a lot in the dark or in the quiet(er) hours of dawn or dusk. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comment!

    I’ve long admired your photography skills, and these images are just stunning. We would love to visit Dresden, but I know my skills won’t do these locations justice. Thankful to see yours.

      Hi and thank you, Betsy; that is very kind of you to say. But I’d like to echo my reply to Kay’s comment: I believe that ” … night pictures require one or a combination of the following: a camera whose detector has good to great low-light performance, steady hands, a tripod, experimentation and perseverance. But it’s the last aspect is one with which most have trouble; I’ve gone and played a lot in the dark or in the quiet(er) hours of dawn or dusk.” What I’m saying is anyone can do night photography too. 🙂 Thanks again!
