Landschaftspark Duisburg 1

View On Black

 

Went to the Landschaftspark in Duisburg-Nord, Germany to do some serious shooting! :) When I came home I'd made 180 photos. That was a good day!

 

The Landschaftspark is an industrial heritage site. Production in the blast furnaces stopped in 1985. Nowadays the park offers a great mixture of industrial heritage, nature and a beautiful lightshow. A great place to photograph during the day, but it's even more mesmerizing by night. The colored lights give the place a mysterious, dark feel. Good opportunity to practice some more with my camera.

 

"What the visitor finds here is a massive industrial wasteland, measuring 200 hectares, which has been transformed over a period of more than ten years into a multifunctional park." (taken from www.landschaftspark.de)

 

edit: I didn't use PS on this shot. It's as is. :)
