The year 2007 was my most productive year in panoramic photography so far. I did not count them, but I think I made more than 50 panoramas this year. However not all of them are stitched yet. I could not decide which one was my best, so I took a new one. I used my favorite technique for this panorama. Shooting with a pole above the heads of the people. This gives a unique point of view, that I like very much.
Here are some links to more of the panoramas I shot this year:


The ice rink you see is installed on the Karlsplatz (or Stachus) in the city center of Munich. In summer there is a fountain instead.
