Reichstag, Berlin: My Most Published Image to date
October 11, 2014 • Leave a Comment
I visited Berlin, Germany during November 2009, a week after the 20th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall. I brought my Canon 5D and 17-40 f/4 L IS lens along with my tripod.
I particularly enjoyed the spacious and ultra-modern glass dome inside the Reichstag (Parliament) building. The Reichstag was restored based on a design by Sir Norman Foster following the reunification of Germany. This is one of the most visited sites in Berlin.
I took the following image while walking up the ramp of the glass dome using the wide angle lens. It turned out to be my most published and featured image by National Geographic Traveler.
This image was published in the Mar-2011 issue of Nat Geo Traveler magazine and Dec-2013 issue of Nat Geo "Best City Weekends" bookazine. It was also featured in Nat Geo Traveler "Your European Cities Photos" (Jan-2011) and "Your Germany Photos" (July-2011).

Here's another view of the illuminated glass dome with reflections on the roof-top. It was raining and I protected the camera with an umbrella.
