The Gates of Saint Peter

This was shot in Dresden, Germany. Again, I was not supposed to be anywhere close to this area with a camera, but I gave serious nods to the right people and before they could get their bearing, I got enough shots to show everyone how awesome this place is!

The Halle Church in Twilight

I walked across the city square in Halle, Germany on the way to a business dinner… I stopped in the middle to take this shot since the clouds and everything was so perfect!

Central Dresden

A perfectly clear day in Germany… although, truth be told – I prefer a bunch of crazy-lookin’ clouds!

Summer in East Germany

This is the front of a cathedral in Leipzig… It was a very nice day… little cafes, pastry shops, and the like…

Triangles in Germany

This is from one of the city squares, which I guess is really a triangle, in Dresden.

The Free State of Saxony

This is the Zwinger Palace in Dresden.

It was built when Augustus the Strong returned from Versailles outside of Paris after visiting Louis XIV. The Neoclassical architecture here is different than the baroque style through the rest of Dresden.

To the right you can see the art museum called the “Old Masters Picture Gallery” where I spent the afternoon. They had many Raphaels, Rubens, Canalettos, and even a Rembrandt there along with an array of work from other northern Italians.

A Power Plant in a Small German Town

I spent the first night in Boehlen, Germany. It was a tiny town about an hour south of Leipzig. I noticed when I drove up that there was a power plant there right by the town.

Dresden Frauenkirche

This church was completely destroyed during the firebombing and was just rebuilt and completed late last year. I was very lucky to capture it without anyone standing in the middle of the shot!
