Fotoeins Friday: Magdeburg in morning light

Waiting for the clouds to part and the morning sun behind me to appear, I’m on the Hubbrücke lift bridge in the capital city of the German state of Saxony-Anhalt. The bridge was once used by trains before conversion to a pedestrian bridge, connecting both sides of the Elbe with residential areas and park spaces on Rotehorn-Werder island in the middle of the river. Dominating the Magdeburg city skyline are the Cathedral at left, the Kunstmuseum Kloster Unser Lieben Frauen Art Museum at centre, and the Johanniskirche at right. Magdeburg is within easy (2 hour) reach from Berlin by train, and is the host city for Germany Travel Mart 2016.

Thanks to Magdeburg Marketing Kongress und Tourismus for providing access to services and facilities in the city, and to Hotel One for a warm welcome and a comfortable stay at Domplatz. I made the photograph on 3 December 2015 using the Canon EOS6D camera, EF 24-105 zoom lens, and the following settings: 1/1000s, f/10, ISO1000, 35mm focal length.

      Hi, Betty. Warm colours, eh? That was about as warm as it got with temperatures around +7C/mid-40s F. Thanks for your comment; I’m glad you liked the photo! 🙂
