Around christmas I visited the small village of Bad Hindelang where I grew up as a child. In recent years around christmas time there was not that much snow or it was even completely green. However this year the snow covered streets reminded me a lot of my childhood days. So I guess this is not the 'Best Of', but the 'Most Fond Of' panorama of 2017. And simply because I associate nice childhood memories of the snow covered streets with it ;-)


I took three individual monopods and connected them to one large one to reach a more elevated view point. The three connected monopods had approximately a height of about 3.5m (about 11.5 ft).
  • Camera: Sony ILCE-QX1
  • Lens: Walimex 7.5mm f/3.5 Fisheye
  • Triple monopod construction
  • Software: Lightroom, PTGui Pro, Smartblend, Photoshop
  • Pictures: 4 pictures around + Nadir
