Blue flowers at the Eiffel tower

I had another shot ready from Portugal for today, but I thought I will post it tomorrow instead, as it’t another panorama. So I chosen a vertorama for today. This one is of course of the Eiffel tower in Paris.

I wanted to hide the big amount of people here (you can still see them a bit on the bottom right) and have this nice patch of blue flowers in the foreground. So I put my camera really low to the ground, to get closer and that also took vertorama, to get the full Eiffel tower in the shot.

This is a vertorama from two exposure, combined in Lightroom, edited in Photoshop.
