The story behind the image

I had received my Canon 1Ds mark II just a couple of weeks before and took it on a trip to Zurich in Switzerland and explored the city with this new beauty. The Polybahn brought us conveniently to the upper station at the ETH, the university of Zurich. In front of the university there is a huge patio that provides stunning views across the city.

The wide angle of the lens captured the panorama of the old town with its many church towers quite well.

Zurich? The place to be.
