2012 was not the best of years and on occasion it was the worst of years, and a year of Apocalyptic weather too; for more of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey see my gallery of VR and Panoramic Images at http://www.gigapan.com/galleries/10076/gigapans

Choosing an image for the 'Best of 2012' was not so easy, but a high point was a tour we made in May to Central Europe. From that tour here is a view of Old Český Krumlov, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Construction of the town and castle began in the late 13th century at a ford in the Vltava River, which was important in trade routes in Bohemia. Most of the architecture of the old town and castle dates from the 14th through 17th centuries; the town's structures are mostly in Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque styles. The core of the old town is within a horseshoe bend of the river, with the old Latrán neighborhood and castle on the other side of the Vltava. [Wikipedia]
