Fotoeins Friday: Leipzig City Tunnel, Wilhelm-Leuschner-Platz

From the top of the stairs near street level, this is the view down into the station at Wilhelm-Leuschner-Platz, one of four stations in the Leipzig City Tunnel through which trains from the S-Bahn Mitteldeutschland network traverse through Leipzig and the surrounding region. For its role as one of the venues during 1989’s East German Peaceful Revolution, the square at street level by the name of Wilhelm-Leuschner-Platz is also called Platz der Friedlichen Revolution (Peaceful Revolution Square).

Fotoeins Friday: Blue streak, Leipzig Bayerischer Bhf

As one of the largest infrastructure projects ever undertaken in the state of Saxony, the City Tunnel created four new underground stations in the city of Leipzig: Hauptbahnhof, Markt, Wilhelm-Leuschner-Platz, and Bayerischer Bahnhof. These form the new backbone for the new S-Bahn Mitteldeutschland train network which began operation in December 2013. Here, an S-Bahn train is pictured departing the station, leaving behind a blurry trail in front of a well-defined stripe of blue.

I made the photo above on 4 December 2014 with the Canon 6D camera and EF 24-105 L-lens with the following settings: 1/4s, f/8, ISO640, 24mm focal length. Leipzig Tourismus und Marketing GmbH kindly hosted my two-day visit to Leipzig. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-6si.
