The story behind the image

Another day, another beautiful image of the Marienplatz in Munich. Whenever I have my gear with me and take a walk across the city center, I check how the two icons of the city – the Marienstatue, and the two towers of the Frauenkirche – present themselves. Is there an interesting or unusual image that I could capture?

In April 2007, puffy white clouds could be seen in the back while bright sunlight illuminated the front. Very nice.
