Cologne's "Crane Houses" at the blue hour

Photographing the crane houses on the Rhine in Cologne is always appealing. In the opposite Rhine meadows you can quickly find suitable photo spots and also good parking facilities.

The wind is occasionally disturbing, which affects longer exposure times even with a stable Manfrotto tripod. This time it should be a special point of view, because we wanted to place the Cologne radio tower directly under one of the outriggers. It worked and despite the wind-dependent camera setting with relatively short shutter speeds, a nice photo was taken.
