Fotoeins Friday: Berlin traffic around the Great Star

“Win-win location situation”

I wonder sometimes if commuters in cars and buses around the traffic circle at Grosser Stern (Great Star) know about the historical significance of the Siegessäule (Victory Column) or that the former location for the column was once at the plaza in front of the Reichstag parliament building nearby. But no matter: it’s worth hanging around on a cold evening for the stream of traffic lights around the circle. Up on the column’s observation platform, there’s a grand view of the German capital city.

I made the photo above in Berlin, Germany, on 8 December 2014 with the Canon 6D, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 0.3-sec, f/4, ISO1250, and 24mm focal length.
