The story behind the image

A walk through the Westpark in Munich, Germany, is beautiful. The park is off the typical tourist magnets – English Garden, Olympic Park, and the Isar River – but it has something for everyone. You get large meadows that can be used for sports, and the trails are perfect for runs of any distance. You can visit a historic Bavarian barn as well as several temples from Asia. There are beer gardens, several playgrounds and lots of flowers. The perfect place for relaxation.

When we visited the park on a nice day in autumn, the roofs of the temples were lurking through the colored leafs of the surrounding trees. I opted for an angle that sparks curiosity in the viewer. Almost instantly you want to know more about this place: Where is it, exactly?

Of course, I do like the fall colors that contrast so well with the white and blue sky. Lovely.
