night Lüneburg

Sunday night 09:30 pm. It was cold and windy but i want to try what HDR can do in the dark. So i decided to go out. It probably was the last chance to make this picture in 2011. What you see is the 100 year old water tower of Lüneburg where i am living. It is out of service now, but every year in winter they put 24 red/yellow and 4 white/blue lights on the top of the tower an made a Dezember Countdown. Every day from Dez 01 to Dez 24 they switch one more yellow light on and every Sunday one white light. On Dez 24 all lights are burning. Tower is 55 meters high and you can see the lights all over the town. Its a wonderfull scene i think. Hope you like it.

You created a great athmosphere with this pic. You managed to draw the attention to the lighting but also show the green of the trees around. Nature meets technic. Cosyness meets scaryness. And as I know the motif in reality - you chose the best possible
