Photographer's Note

Elbphilharmonie

Here is a more detailed photo of the building which I already showed in my previous photo. This is the Elbphilharmonie (The Elbe Philharmonic Hall), the new concert hall in Hamburg, which opened in in January 2017. It is located at the tip of a peninsula in the river Elbe and in the district of HafenCity. Nicknamed Elphi, the large glass structure of the concert hall, resembling a ship, waves, or an iceberg, was built on top of a warehouse (Kaispeicher A) from 1963 and designed by architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron. Theres an observation deck at the 8th floor, the top of the brick part.

Its not easy to get good photos of the building from this side, both because of possible backlight and the presence of quite some other tall buildings close by. I guess the best viewpoint is found from a boat on the Elbe. I added an alternative view from the other side to the WS.
