Taking a pano when it's still (nearly) night made me first think at a place in town with illumination all around.

But then the breaking of the day appeared as a perfect scene that is available in that way only for this wrinkle in time. So I got out of bed at 6 am (which was the first challenge, but then for a good shot ...), carried my equipment near the airport in the cold (about -8 °C/17 F) and shot. Airport security was observing me from behind the fence but did not interfere. Luckily there were two planes heading off during my 3 minutes shoot.
