Erfurt Christmas Market – the other side

Not sure if you have ever heard of the Erfurt Christmas market. Main reason why it is that popular in this region is the magnificent background, provided by the impressive cathedral and the chuch next to it. Both are located on a hill with the Christmas market at its feet.

If you saw a guy with a tripod standing between all the folks there and trying to capture photos – yeah, it was me. Even the long exposure time did not get the photo rid of people standing in the frame.

Erfurt Christmas Market. (another approach)

I took a similar photo in December 2011 (link). Last time i placed the camera on one of the steps which lead up the the Erfurt cathedral. This time I went there on purpose, carrying a tripod with me. I probably will do that again once we see snow at the christmas market. Anyway a nice outcome of that activity.

There was this sunday afternoon in October last year. We decided to have something like a “cultural day”. The heroic FC Carl Zeiss Jena called out for us and we couldn’t resist to witness the unfortunal tie against Wacker Nordhausen. 

According to her it wasn’t our last visit to “the Paradise” and I am looking forward to visit a nice match somewhen in spring again.

Little Trabant adventures

Sorry for not posting lately. I somehow got lost in social media. Posting on Instagram and then I forget to post it here. Should think about using IFTTT to streamline such activities.

Not that spectacular right now, as winter has come and we got plenty of snow here as well. But the little Trabant has been with me at Weißsee Gletscherwelt last summer. Hopefully its journey will continue.
