The story behind the image

In 2009, we visited Nova Scotia and explored the province and continued with New Brunswick and Quebec.

One of the towns that really captured me with its beauty and history is Lunenburg. Apparently named after the German town of Lüneburg (in Lower Saxony) you still find signs of the German heritage. Albeit the German original is not situated at the coastline, the founders arranged with the new challenges of living at the Atlantic Ocean and found their freedom and peace here.

I shot this panorama photo from opposite the town center with its working harbor. I composed it from several shots, and the original file has a stunning width of 10,772 Pixels which is good enough for a 36″ wide print at 300 dpi. But zooming into the high resolution imag eis also fun as you can keep zooming in and discover more details with each click. Awesome.
