Photographer's Note

I am sure someone will point out here that the tower of Burgtor is unfortunately placed in the very centre of the frame breaking the rule of thirds. However what I regret more is that I cut away so much of the reflection in the water. It would be so much more attractive having more of it! Well, too late for that since it is an archival photo taken almost exactly 10 years ago. I decided to share this picture mainly because of a very interesting light I had over there. It is as well a little known POV towards the gate.

Burgtor, built 1444 in late Gothic style, was the northern city gate of Hanseatic Lübeck, now in Germany. It is one of two towered gates remaining from the medieval fortifications, the other being the more famous Holstentor. The Baroque helmet-like roof was added in 1685.
