Urban Waterfall in Berlin

It was a bit of a surprise. I saw the sign “Viktoria Park – 350m” and followed that sign. From a closer distance I heard running and splashing water. And then I saw the waterfall and the national monument in the distance. Not the perfect time of day. I set up my Fuji X100F on a rock (no tripod, no filter) and used the ND feature of my camera (3 stops) to further reduce the shutter speed to achieve the blurry water effect. I shot a F16. ISO 100. My shutter speed was now at 2 seconds in bright day light. 2 second timer. The image is OK for me. But I have to come back. This time with tripod and filter and hopefully a sunset will light up the scene. I had to go all the way to Berlin to find a waterfall. Amazing! And… I heard there is a second one near to where I stay in Berlin. Happy days. Reinhold

  1. This park is so beautiful, I’ve visited two years ago but the park looked really desolate… maybe it was because of the winter ( December) No water (fall) :(. Great shot, love your style!

    • Thank you so much! The park still looks a bit desolate. Even in early summer. It deserves a really more attention and care. It was a bit of a surprise to see this waterfall in the center of Berlin. Hopefully there will be more gems along the way. Happy days. Reinhold
