The cover picture shows the view of the upper Isar valley, which is considered to be the last wild river landscape in Germany. Photographer Cyril Gosselin titled his photo Bairisch Kanada and thus indicates that the area is becoming increasingly forested due to the water management, despite the raging water masses. This creates a touch of Canada in the middle of Bavaria.

“The 2012 opened Überseequartier underground station In Hamburg’s HafenCity, I am fascinated by its clear lines and strict symmetry, ”writes Tobias Hucker about his picture of the day. “I find the interplay of space and flatness in the eastern stairwell photographically attractive, which I emphasize with a central camera position and the use of a strong wide-angle lens. When realizing the recording, I was helped by the low passenger frequency during the lockdown – a brief moment in which neither people nor subways could be seen in the picture was not long in coming. ”
