29 November 2012.
Thalys train number 9437 departed at 1155am from Paris Nord, France, for its destination in Essen, Germany, via Brüssel Midi, Aachen, Köln, and Düsseldorf. Arriving at 315pm on track 3, the Thalys train is pictured here in Köln central train station, and is set to depart for Düsseldorf at the scheduled time of 325pm. Most passengers visible on the “island” platform are waiting for another train to arrive on adjacent track 2.
During my year-long RTW, I made this photo on 29 November 2012 with the Canon 450D, 18-55 kit-lens, and the following settings: 1/10-sec, f/4.5, ISO800, and 33mm focal length (53mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-ai3.
