The story behind the image

I think panorama shots are always exciting, because you never know exactly how they will turn out. At least if you’re composing your panoramas manually. This resembles the times when you had to wait for the developed negatives and prints from the lab.

This panorama shows the view across Bad Hofgastein in Austria from the hike called Höhenwanderweg. It was still too early to stop by the Café Gamskar (which is located right behind the photographer) for lunch, but the view from there is awesome.

As always with panorama shots, looking at the picture at 100% reveals many details (for example, the herd of cows on the opposite side) that simply get lost when looking at a smaller version. Awesome.
