Fotoeins Friday: Berlin fall, three

(Autumn in Berlin, 3 of 4.)

It’s a beautiful clear Sunday afternoon with that distinctive sharp chill in the late-autumn air. I hop on the U6 metro north in anticipation of photographing a few small planes at Tegel (Otto-Lilienthal) airport. A look around the metro station shows me an ideal out of the way location. In the image above, I’m facing west towards runway 08R/26L, watching planes directly overhead on their final approach to TXL airport.

With the long-awaited opening of the BER Berlin-Brandenburg airport at the end of October 2020, operations ceased at Tegel airport with one last flight a few weeks later. The airport was officially decommissioned in May 2021.

I made the photo above on 7 Dec 2014 with a Canon EOS6D mark1 and the following settings: 1/1000-sec, f/8, ISO500, and 105mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-lte.
