Continuing Cologne in the Fog series - i was "brave" enough to go
into the fog and crossed the Hohenzollern Bridge
for the search for the cathedral -
and almost on the other side i could finally see it, as
the fog was the thickest in the middle of the Rhine.

Once over the river the view was almost clear, just the
fog above the Rhine remained, but not for long, as the
sun came up in this spectacular rising and within a
minute the white wall was lifted.

Thanks & Merry Christmas!

Awesome perspective Thorsten. The golden fire remained in the reflection. Very nice inclusion of the long boat. Merry Christmas,

The sunlight on those clouds that break through the fog really make this a nice one to look at, Thor. The boat adds a nice element to the shot, the compo is great!

Bonjour Thorsten.
Une très belle composition avec des couleurs magnifiques.
Une très très belle réalisation.
Bravo !

repost of yesterday?
well its still a beautiful picture with great light

Great timing, very dramatic looking picture. The barge came just in time to lend contrast to the fg.
Cheers and Happy New Year

Hi Thorsten,

I have to comment on this one as well. This is just perfect. Look at the composition. Look at the positioning of the light and the boat. Look at the various tones in the clouds. This is just art. Very, very nice!!

Greetings, Dennis

Thorsten Super art shot
Just super ........


hi Thor,
It´s surprisingly good the fire effect, if you don´t write is fog, hardly you can say it is. Nice and good job
