A closeup of the wrapped-up railway bridge which is being turned into a pedestrian path. The renovation has been going on since early this year and is scheduled to last until the rest of 2018 at least.

River Views #312: Spring on the Ruhr 1


Back in April I posted two videos and completely forgot the accompanying photos. So here we go with a new batch of River Views from Mülheim’s Riverfront – here the view from the Schloßbrücke towards the old railway bridge, which is being renovated this year. These photos are from April 8.

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.
