River Views #311: Spring Video Preview II

Another video from the Ruhr Riverfront with Geese, Swans and some surprise guests. The last third of the video is slowed down by 50% creating a slow-motion effect shooting in 50fps and playing back at 25.

River Views #310: Spring Video Preview

I was trying out my new lens (more on that later) today down at the river and while I was mostly taking photos, I also shot some video which I was able to edit more quickly than processing the images. So here are some swans and geese down at the river. Note that I only uploaded to Youtube this time because I realized that with more video coming, my webspace would get cramped fast!

River Views #309: Southwards in Motion

While walking from the Schloßbrücke to the Wasserbahnhof back in September, I also shot a little bit of video, which I didn’t even want to post at first because it turned out a bit shaky. I’m not really used to shoot video with the heavy Sony camera, but I edited the footage a little bit and it was too good to just throw away. So here it is, with apologies for the camera noises and the occasional slight wobble.

Back on the “mainland” next to Mülheim’s Wasserbahnhof is the Cafe Plati right next to the river.

This is the MS Bussard, the river policing ship that is almost always moored to one side of the ship’s lock entrance at Mülheim’s Wasserbahnhof. I’ve actually never seen it on the river itself, maybe it’s retired.

The North end of Mülheim’s Schleusenkanal at the Wasserbahnhof – you can see the ship’s lock here which has been at this location since the mid-1800s.

This is Mülheim’s actual Wasserbahnhof, the round building with its distinctive pointy roof that houses the headquarters of the Weisse Flotte and a restaurant. It was originally built in the mid-1920s and was extensively renovated in the early 1990s.
