I had a very enjoyable – but very cold! – weekend of photography and
pre-Christmas cheer in Nürnberg, home of the “original and best”
Christmas Market known as “Christkindlesmarkt” (the “Christ Child
Market”). I was told that I was very lucky to be there at a time when
there was snow giving a seasonal frosting to the market stall roofs –
it’s uncommon to have snow there in December – although this year they
have had somewhat too much!
90-degrees rotated as with my other panoramas – I will see how
Posterous renders it, and if necessary re-post it rotated if it’s not
possible for readers to see a full-scale image. On this panorama I especially like the star effect of the lights on
the Christmas trees flanking the door of the Frauenkirche (large
church to the right of centre), and the bandstand in between (you can
just make out the trombones!). I also like the shadowy visible
figures around the market stalls in the lower foreground, with a
motion blur imparted by the long exposure I needed for these shots.
