Overall view of the German
Museum in Munich from its
tall tower. The domes of the
museum’s two observatories
and the planetarium can be
seen projecting from the roof.
The buildings are located on
an island in the Isar river.
>> For several reasons this shot
proved unexpectedly difficult
to arrange, therefore I had no
chance to repeat it with a more
dramatic sky.
     I wanted to shoot at dusk,
and I wanted it to be spring,
with light green foliage on the
trees. That meant I had to be
atop the tower four hours after
the museum closes, at a time
when the alarm system is
activated. Besides, the tower
was actually unsafe and closed
for renovation.
