The Amberg town square, with the "Martinskirche" (Basilica St. Martin) and the Town Hall at dusk. I haven’t taken a lot of panoramas in 2009, and this is one of the last ones shot with my 20D. The timing was just right for a "magic hour" scene with various lights of different colors, and the long exposure turned the water of the fountain into veils.

The "wedding fountain" was unveiled in 2000. It shows the 1474 wedding of Count Palatine Philipp and his bride Margarete von Bayern-Landshut.
