Gdańsk looks fabulous in winter. Winter, like a skilled retoucher, masks all imperfections of this world with a thick layer of snow. The views often become almost monochromatic, almost graphic. It's a very interesting time to photograph because you can see completely new pictures in well-known places. Winter forces drone enthusiasts to hunt for a "weather window" in which there will be interesting light, and snow, wind and frost will allow them to fly and take photos. I invite you to watch Gdańsk in winter!
You can see more photos from this amazing city in the galleries: Gdansk by night, Gdańsk from the sky, Summer in Gdańsk and Autumn in Gdańsk.
Winter, snowy, windy and exceptionally cool evening in Gdańsk. I came to the center to photograph the city in the sunset. Unfortunately in the meantime the weather did a trick and the clouds came. That's why I walked around the city for over an hour waiting for the lights to turn on in order to take a few night photos with the drone. I have to admit that this little flying machine coped with quite a strong wind and I was able to take some still pictures.
Flying a drone over the city is mesmerizing and I think it can be addictive. The views that can be seen from this perspective is almost fairytale. In addition, in the evening one of my favorite color combinations appears - blue and yellow - perfectly complementing cold and warm colors.
Frozen Motława and snow-covered hotels, apartments and restaurants on the Granary Island in the center of Gdańsk. More night photos from this amazing city you cen see in the gallery: Gdańsk by night.
A moment after sunset, when the lanterns and lights in the windows are already shining, but the sky is still not completely black, it is the so-called blue hour - the perfect time to photograph cities. And this year winter is so cold that the Motława River froze.
