360 degree panoramic image in cylindrical projection. It shows one of my favorite spots in Saxon Switzerland, a romantic sandstone mountain area in Germany. The remarkable rock needle in the foreground is called "Barbarine". A local saga tells the story about a girl that were bewitched and turned to stone. You can feel the mystic aura if you visit this place in a new moon night and have a spectacular view to the stars.
