    I was in Berlin recently, and couldn't refuse heading up to what translates as the Devil's Mountain for an explore.

    Some history from wikipedia:

    I visited with my host, a reasonably petrified non-member there for the ride, and as soon as we got in it was clear that we weren't alone. As a result I didn't get half the pictures I wanted to, nor spend half the time that I wanted to on the pictures that I did get!

    First up-close view of the station.

    At this point we found the much more well lit outside staircase :rolleyes:

    This is where the explore turned into cat and mouse with the security that appeared. I was a bit pissed off that they weren't doing anything about the people on the roof making a lot of noise and throwing bottles off, but were getting us and some others taking photos out.

    Of course though, I wouldn't let that stop me.

    For the next half hour we chilled outside the site with some beers before I did my best Solid Snake and snuck in solo to run up to the top... straight into security! I asked for one shot from the roof, which they allowed me. Mid way through setting up one of them said in German what I think roughly translates as 'are you taking the fucking piss you English piece of shit?', but it was windy up there, so I'm not sure if he was using the polite form of 'you' :D

    This was my only roof shot and I didn't even get one of the radomes up close, or the main bit of the city! :mad:

    Got this on the way down

    And this one on the back way out.


    Overall it was a great afternoon, but I'm gutted I didn't get the shots I wanted. I am pretty new to the DSLR game though, so I am learning. I've read afterwards that security have threatened fines or to take pictures away, but fortunately this wasn't the case when I visited. They just let all the people getting wasted in the radomes stay there :crazy
