With every heave of the Maibaum this traditionally dressed Bavarian Man would shout "Hau Ruck". A term not really easily translated into English, it basically means "heave-ho" and ensures that the team of men charged with the duty of raising the Maibaum, lift and heave in unison!In Putzbrunn, the task of raising the Maibaum is done the traditional Bavarian way - by the brute strength of men.
I photographed this photo with the digital SLR camera model Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II, aperture of f/6.3, exposure time of 1/320 sec. on ISO 100, as always I used a original Canon Lens, the focus lenght for this picture was 130mm.
