The story behind the image

One beautiful afternoon I was in the city center of Munich and had most of my gear with me. Then I realized that I was just a few steps away from the Marienplatz and realized an idea I had for some time: Take a picture of the Marienstatue with the towers of the Frauenkirche as backdrop at the perfect clockmakers time – 10 minutes before 2 pm. Worked out wonderfully. What a nice shot.
