    "Munsterplatz: Christmas Lights" by Declan Reilly is the picture that won the People's Choice Award for our "My Basel", the photo competition to mark the 20th Anniversary of Centrepoint. 

    Declan, an enthusiastic hobby photographer, is from Dublin, Ireland.  Declan lived with his family in Basel for three years before recently moving to Mumpf.

    "Armed with a camera, an everyday walk can become a creative experience, using the abundance of resources surrounding you to capture a moment.  This image is an example and with a bit of luck, I was in the right place at the right time to catch the Magic of Christmas Time". 

    Here is Declan's winning entry for your enjoyment:-
