Sunset over Berlin

January 12, 2013

 I took these pictures on a viewing platform at Potsdamer Platz. It was already cold, but there was a beautiful sunset over the city. And sun is something, we don't see a lot of these days... all snowy, rainy, muddy. Brrr....

I have to mention that I found it really, really difficult to catch the sunset over the city. The colours  around me changed minute-by-minute and I was not as fast in changing my camera's settings. 

The picture below is unedited. I just played with my camera's white balance. Although the city is too dark, I love how the sky turned out.

By the way, this is the 100th post! Wow...

    “The sky broke like an egg into full sunset and the water caught fire.” Pamela Hansford Johnson
