Some HDRs of the area

Hindu Temple, Hamm, NRW, HDR

The Hindu Temple in Hamm is located in the middle of an industrial zone near the canal and the power plant. The building is covered in pink and white stripes and looks impressive with the two towering roof decorations. I have unfortunately not been inside of it yet.

Der Hindu Tempel in Hamm ist mitten im Industriegebiet, am Kanal und in der Nähe des Kraftwerks. Das Gebäude ist vollständig rosa-weiß gestreift und sieht von außen sehr imposant aus. Von innen habe ich es leider noch nicht besichtigt.

It was by random that we found Zeche Westfalen (coal mine) when we were on a photo tour of the area, following interesting signs. It turned out to be a great location for HDR photography, especially because hardly anyone was there that day.

I love the writing on the photo above. "Denke an Deine Sicherheit" - "Think of your safety!" - and in this text, one letter is about to drop!

Mehr zufällig haben wir die Zeche Westfalen in Ahlen gefunden, als wir auf Foto-Tour waren. Eine tolle Location für HDR-Aufnahmen, auch weil nur wenige Menschen dort waren.

Mir gefällt diese Gesamtsicht auf die Gebäude vor allem wegen der Schrift. Und gerade in diesem Text stürzt ein Buchstabe ab.

  1. This smacks of immense age and use and abuse. Is it possible to explain the use of the buildings shown? Does this all lead to the mine entrance? Is there a link to the history of such a mine?

    Although it is French, have you ever read Zola's book about coal mining, Germinal? All the horrors of men trying to make a living by wrestling precious coal from under the earth, none of which they would get.
