Liège - A night at the station

Some people prefer a night at the opera, others a night at the station :)

In late December and early January the weather in Belgium was very dreary and rainy. During daytime there were no good occasions to take beautiful pictures of this splendid railway station. Certainly not as beautiful as you can see on other photos posted by other member during sunnier periods.
But in winter the night falls early and as soon as it was dark I could photograph this wonderful project of Calatrava in all its splendor.

This is my second picture of the railway station of Liège-Guillemins designed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. It was officially opened on September 18, 2009.
It has 9 tracks and 5 platforms (three of 450 m and two of 350 m). The station is made of steel, glass and white concrete. It includes a monumental arch, 160 metres long and 32 metres high.
