The story behind the image

The office of my former employer had been located close to the Munich city center. This was pretty convenient as most of the suburban train lines where stopping at the Hackerbrücke station which was just a few minutes walk from the office.

One evening in November 2016, there had been a nice sunset followed by what can only be described as an awesome blue hour. The remaining sunlight dipped a few clouds in powerful red and orange tones while the office buildings where brightly illuminted. A train had just stopped, adding a nice red eye catcher in the bottom left corner of the image.
