Skyline of Salzburg as seen from the Mirabell Park and gardens

The skyline of Salzburg with the prominent Salzburg Castle (Festung Hohensalzburg) at its centre. This picture was taken at the Mirabell Gardens from a spot where thousands of photographs are taken every year. We tried to do it a little bit differently and used a wide-angle to distort the Baroque garden to an extent that the famous and familiar skyline merged to a surreal, seemingly distant and empty image. Lesson to be learned: Salzburg is not (only) a busy, cowded and expesive place - Salzburg is what you make of it.
