For this year's "Best Of" theme I've chosen a panorama that I could not have realized a year ago.


This is mainly because of the equipment I've used. This panorama has been made with the use of a lens I bought this year. It is much smaller than the fisheye I usually use for my WWP submissions. Furthermore this lens has been used with an adapter to fit on one of my smaller cameras. An additional step was to use a self built remote release for the camera. Only with this setup I was able to put my pole construction with the attached camera through the narrow gap in the fence on the tower of the St.Peter church.
