Formerly country life — light and fire

The special feature of the Kiekeberg Museum is that the houses are on special events »inhabited« until the evening hours, which in particular offers impressive lighting moods in the winter. The houses are cold — only 2 degrees warmer than in the open air — and so you can always see steam from the cookers or smoke from the fire places.

In the early evening it becomes so dark in the houses that one can only observe the farmer family and the servants and the maids at work in the light of candles and a few fire places. Muchwork is made close to the fire, because only there enough light is available.

A cold winter morning at the Landungsbrücken in Hamburg. Opposite is a special ship of the offshore industry in dock Elbe 17 of Blohm + Voss. It is almost like a toy to look at when you look at the 4 legs with their holes to secure a certain height. It reminds me of a children’s desk, whose table legs can be varied similarly in height.

Here, however, the contrast of the brightly illuminated ship in the dock and the red-and-white striped legs is particularly effective. In addition the lamps, which shines directly to the landing bridges and creates this interesting star effect.

On my way to the Stintfang, from which I wanted to make a few night shots of the harbor and the dockyards of Blohm & Voss, I passed the Trostbrücke. I saw the House of the Patriotic Society lit across the Fleet. I immediately took the opportunity and went with tripod and camera to the bridge over the Nikolaifleet.

In the picture you can see the House of the Patriotic Society on the left but also an office building on the street Alte Börse. But the most stunning effect of this image is the starry sky over Hamburg. I am currently amazed at how much you can see stars even in this big city.

The opening of the Elbphilharmonie on 11th January 2017 was staged with a fantastic lighti and laser show. Matching the music of the opening concert the facade of the former Kaispeicher and the glass construction was illuminated. Again and again laser beams shot into the sky or let the base stand out from the surrounding Elbe.

In the winter shortly after sunrise, the southern facade of the Elbphilharmony shines like a second sun — while our real sun continued to rise in the southeast. Dock 10 of the shipyard Blohm & Voss is still visible in the foreground, while the power station of the Hafencity on the the left behind the Elbphilharmony blows golden smoke into the sky.

A sublime sight.
