Surfing at Eisbach Bridge View

Surfing is a popular water sport you would not expect in Munich, hundreds of kilometers away from the next coast line. The location is at the Eisbach, which translates to ice brook just next to the Haus der Kunst in Munich. The standing wave can be surfed the whole year, but even in summer the water is very cold.

The history of surfing the Eisbach goes back into the year 1972 (according to Wikipedia).

The Eisbach flows under ground for some kilometers and is a part of the Isar river. After the popular surf spot it flows through the Englischer Garten a large park where you can relax just in the heart of the city.

Opernplatz (Frankfurt am Main) in the summer of 2004

At the time of shooting (August 07, 2004) this was my largest and most complex panorama. For this panorama I used 90 images in three rows in portrait orientation. Despite the 5 megapixel of the camera the final image has 32493 x 6171 pixels (that’s ~200 megapixel). It was really tricky to stitch, as the computer was reaching it’s limits in more than one aspect (main memory and hard disk).

Panorama at Aratiatia Rapids

Despite the resolution of only 5 megapixels of one of the original images the stitched image has 55 megapixel due to its high number of source images. For this panorama I used 22 images in landscape orientation.

The Aratiatia Rapids are flooded every two hours from the dammed section of the Waikato river.
