In the evening and as night falls the river and harbor is covered by this wonderful light. The colorful shores change to an almost monochromatic impression, interrupted by the lights of houses and the workdocks in the distance.
A lot of the residence come down for an evening walk and have a look if some of the ships leave for another journey.
