Not much to say here. I just think this panorama is my most spectacular one I made this year!

Making Of

I shot the panorama from inside the head of the Bavaria statue that can be ascended inside. The Sony NEX-5 with the attached fisheye converter just fits through one of the four openings inside Bavaria's head. I took 21 images just to be sure to have everything covered by holding my arm with the camera through the opening in the forehead.
