Part of the new BMW Welt Architectural concept by COOP HIMMELBAU. Located near the BMW factory, this photogenic building houses the delivery centre events, exhibitions and shops and is linked to the BMW Museum next door. Well worth a visit, even if you’re not picking up a car! The Olympic Park and Stadium are right nearby.
I had seen so many shots of this amazing architecture but never gone by myself. On the way home from a photo session with friends I drove past and saw the amazing winter evening light – nearly causing a car crash as I swerved into their car park.

Location: Munich, Germany.
Nikon D200, Sigma 18-200mm. f/14, ISO 800, 1.6s, 18 mm. RAW, tweaking in CS4.

Sold a photographic print and a greeting card to anonymous RB buyers, and for use as the title image in a Conference Workshop Brochure.
