For almost 30 years circus Conelli is coming to Zurich for Christmas time. Each year I’m excited to enjoy the colorful event at the Limmat riverside. On this evening I finally was able to shoot a panorama which I had in my mind for a long time. This picture shows the most famous sight of Zurich during a five-minute exposure.

The forecast predicted wind and rain. Nevertheless, I finally wanted to realize a picture which I had in mind for quite a while. On the surface of the newly build Sechseläuten Platz the Zurich Opera was reflecting very beautiful. The windy weather had the benefit that no one was standing there for a longer time. Therefore, the city looks almost deserted. Lonesome in metropolitan areas, a magical and surreal vista.

Almost nowhere public transportation is so punctual as in Switzerland. The trams in Zurich are no different. At the newly renovated tram station Central I just had to check the schedule to see when which tram creates some light painting.
