Photo Trip and Trier Photos

We drove down to Folkestone yesterday, Friday,  and caught an early shuttle across the channel. Then 6 hours from Calais we arrived in Trier, our first time here.
Overcast and rain showers so I didn't rush to take photos. My bad back needed time to recover anyway.
We wandered around to get our bearings waiting for the rain to stop and the clouds to break up, which they did at around 6pm. The pedestrian zone in the centre has so many vehicles driving around it the name is a bit of a misnomer!
Took photos of the old Roman gate, the main square and the cathedral then had a break as the light faded. Found a pub that sold Schwarzbier and reasonable food to while away the time until dusk.
Shooting resumed about 8.30pm, lights were on and starting to look good but there was still detail in the sky. Took the main locations again as night shots. All done by 9.45pm.
The photos included here were taken on my Samsung S3 phone and edited in Snapseed to resemble darkroom prints.
No wifi at our hotel so this may be posted a bit late!
