This picture was taken during a rainy day. It was captured using mobile with a 3 second timer. The mobile was kept upside down and the image was reversed for posting. This is an artistic view of Freiburger Münster from the Schlossberg viewpoint. On editing part, the sky colors are highlighted using phone apps. No other editing were done. The reflection is seen in rain water standing in mud.

This picture was also in the cover for OpenArt 2020 Exhbition from THESNAPWALK. It was captured again and again in different years. But, this scene is uniquely seen from the walking stairs of Schlossberg. The leaves at the edges gives a nice perspective to look at this picture. The timing is around evening, just when the sun sets behind the Münster under hills. The shot was taken in a basic DSLR with low ISO. And the colors are highlighted using a mobile app. No other editing was done.

An unique picture of Martinstor. One in hundreds, may be. This was also featured in Photochllenge4u team for Reflection photography, which won the team challenge. It was my 1st submission in that challenge. I still believe, it was the best pic of Martinstor. A tram was going by and I shot the image using camera, on a mobile surface as reflector. Those , who are new to my page or might not know, I don’t take pictures using bottled water, as some photographers do, mostly. I use natural surfaces, rain or water bodies already in nature to take reflections. There was no edit on this picture. It was just reversed for the artistic view. Some other pictures on my mobile surface are also there in this top 10 pictures.

The love has no language, barrier as they say. I met so many couples over the years in Freiburg and talked on different levels. This was my first time, when I talked with them and asked for a picture with unique perspective of Münster, with love. They were shy initially, but later they agreed that, I won’t reveal their faces. They are still my friends. Let me know, if you want some iconic pictures with your love in Freiburg. I would be more than happy to do some photoshoots depending on requirements. There was only color highlight edit on this picture. Timing – Sunset time.

The name Herz-Jesu-Kirche translates to Sacred Heart Church, otherwise known as Stühlinger Kirche. It is situated in hearts of Stühlinger area and can be viewed as a iconic site in Freiburg from Bluebridge. I did not cover the blue bridge specially here in this post. You can find the pictures of Blue Bridge on my instagram. The bridge serves as the place for relaxation. Teenage people sit with their friends on the bridge and watch the city view , sunset and the bikers going. It is a must in Freiburg to be at Blue Bridge and take pictures of Stühlinger Kirche from the Novotel side of the bridge. This was a handheld shot taken at higher ISO approx. 6400.

The Same church as mentioned in no. 7 of this post is viewed from different perspective during Sunset. This is from the stairs of the one end of the bridge. At Novotel end. People are seen enjoying as the evening sets in. This is classic Freiburg. Summer time goes until 11 to 12 during night on this bridge as people seen relaxing. Freiburg and the Blue Bridge , you can never take apart these two words.
