Wenn die Sonne untergeht, beginnt die Brücke zu strahlen –
When the sun goes down the bridge starts to shine


Auch Autos werden nur noch als Lichter wahrgenommen –
Even cars are perceived only as lights


Lightlines führen Fußgänger sicher auf die andere Seite –

  1. Muy buena serie, me ha gustado mucho. Saludos

  2. Amazing, very well captured… 🙂

    Wilhelmshaven is absolutly worth visiting… 🙂

    • Thank you, Drake for your kind comment and your faithful visits. Yes, Wilhelmshaven is really worth visiting. It’s a city that needs a second view, if you know what I mean. It’s not like Flensburg, Hamburg, Bremen …
      Wilhelmshaven was destroyed in WWII and they made mistakes in rebuilding. The last years they worked hard to correct the mistakes.
      But there are lots of places – also from the past – worth visiting. And there is the feeling from a city at the Sea 🙂
      Have a creative time,

      • Yes agree about Wilhelmshaven and the Lower Saxony Wadden Sea National Park is absolutly an attractive area too – as I know so Wilhelmshaven is the only german deep-water port which has great influence in the area – the naval harbor too – unluckily the naval harbor was the cause of the strategic bombing in the war , wars always hits civilians hardest – the „JadeWeserPort Cup” connecting all kind of ships in october is fascinating too – and still some old architecture left.

        Agree with you the later years rebuilding have been much more inspiring than the first attempts in the 1950s and early 1960s – now they have their heart (feeling) in the work… 🙂

      • I see you know the area, too 🙂
        Yes, the Wadden Sea National Parc is very attractive. It’s right the Jade-Weser-Port is Germans only deep-water-port. But it’s not used as wanted. Hamburg and Bremerhaven still have the most shiploads. There are big discussions to deepen river Elbe. Would be a problem for Wilhelmshaven (WHV). But in WHV lacks the structure behind the Jade-Weser-Port …
        Everything takes time in WHV 🙂
        A very nice area is the Rüstringer Park with the old cemetery – https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ehrenfriedhof_de_Wilhelmshaven
        See you in WHV 😉

      • Agree about WHV, this ’not so fast mood‘ be both a charm and an obstacle – this ‚fight‘ between WHV and BHV isn’t the only one seen, it happens a lot of places.

        Yeah it could be great fun, having a city cruise… 😀

      • I agree, the competition of cities isn’t a new fact, but I think it’s the wrong way to survive. Cities must work together. High costs and the demographical change need new solution.
        City cruise 🙂
        Good night,

      • Agree… 🙂

        Sleep well… 🙂

  3. Really great photos 🙂 I love the hidden lights 🙂

    • Thank you for your kind words, Scifi. The bridge is a nice object for photographer day as well as night. I like the twilight hour and the night 🙂

    I’m back to admire you photos again. Amazing night light captures, the bridge looks so magnificent. Love the B&W version. Well done, Ulli! 🙂

    • Thank you so much, dear Amy. I’m glad you like the b/w version, so do I. I think, it takes the oppression of night and darkness.
      Have a nice day.
