Number 40: Sunset silhouettes at Hamburg’s Sandtorhafen

sunset, silhouette, Sandtorhafen, Hamburg, Germany

The width of the Elbe expands as the river approaches its mouth at the North Sea. In Hamburg, the Elbe is sufficiently wide and deep that a port has had a presence here for centuries. At Sandtorhafen, the last rays of sunlight provided a great background upon which the port’s cranes, the bridge, and people crossing the bridge made great silhouettes.

I made the photo on 2 October 2011. This post appears on Fotoeins WIDE at
