Photographer's Note

The photo is taken at the geographical center of Europe.
In 1989, Jean-George Affholder, a scientist at the Institut Géographique National (French National Geographic Institute) determined that the Geographic Centre of Europe is located at 54°54′N 25°19′E. The method used for calculating this point was that of the centre of gravity of the geometrical figure of Europe. This point is located 26 kilometres north of Vilnius.
On the left side - monument created by sculptor Gediminas Jokubonis in 2004.

Photo was taken with lens zoomed to 10 mm. However, I had to adjust vertical perspective a lot and later crop from both sides, so it's not very wide anymore.
