Number 12: Herbst in der Hauptstadt | autumn in the capital city
Autumn or fall in the German capital is marked by a brilliant display of colour as the amount of sunlight each day goes down, temperatures head south on the thermometer, and leaves in the deciduous trees lose their ability to synthesize chlorophyll. From the top of the Reichstag building, you look west over the Platz der Republik in the foreground, through Tiergarten park, past the Carillon on the right, out to the Siegesäule (Victory Column) and beyond. I wrote about autumn’s colours in Berlin in a blogpost here.
I made the photo above on 14 October 2008. This post appears on Fotoeins Wide at fotowide.wordpress.com.
