The story behind the image

Here’s another awesome shot from the Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany. The sun was about to set and illuminated the cabins of the the giant Ferris Wheel at the Theresienwiese in super warm colors.

I totally adore the countless shades of orange and yellow in a contrast rich image that required very little editing.
