Schaffhausen Panorama

Panoramas


Panorama shots I'm slowly digging out of old collections and stitching together using Hugin (highly recommended). Many of these are not cropped, because doing so would cut off interesting parts of the image (see the Sjonarnipa images for illustration of this). The trick appears to be taking source images as close to 35mm full-frame focal length (24 on the sub-frame Nikon D80 and D7000 used here) …  (read more)

Schaffhausen Panorama

23 Feb 2009 67
The falls on the Rhein at Schaffhausen. Didn't realize until we got on the bus back to the train station and had to pay in Swiss francs instead of Deutschmarks that we had at some point crossed over the border unawares.

Acropolis Panorama

23 Feb 2009 63
The Erechtheion, on the Acropolis in Athens.

Acropolis Panorama

23 Feb 2009 59
As seen from the other major hill in Athens, whose name I forget, on the way towards the Roman city.

Delphi Panorama

23 Feb 2009 59
The temple of Apollo at Delphi.

Santorini Panorama

23 Feb 2009 80
Looking towards Ia and Therassia, I think, from Fira.

Eibsee Panorama

09 Jun 2007 49
Three-image composite of the view from the hotel room at the Eibsee Hotel. Hand-stitched, bitches.

Five Polish Lakes - Panorama

07 Aug 2008 39
Finally got around to stitching together a group of five photos I took at the Five Polish Lakes. This is from just in front of Schronisko Gorskim.

Reykjavik

11 Jul 2010 51
(View at full size .) As seen from the observation deck at Perlan

Laugavegur

15 Jul 2010 57
(View at full size .) An almost-360 pano from early on the third day, just after leaving Emstrur. Believe it or not, this was done hand-held, and only has a sliver cropped off the top and bottom. One more shot and it'd be a full 360 (it's only about 3-4 degrees short, I think).

Thorsmork

15 Jul 2010 96
(View at full size .) At the end of the trek, looking back the way we came from the summit of Valahnukur. The shadow is of me standing behind the "sundial" summit marker, using its flat surface in place of a tripod. Left uncropped, again, because it cuts off good parts of the image.

Skaftafellsjökull Panorama - Uncropped

03 Sep 2012 70
(View at full size .) From the overlook at Sjónarnípa, looking across at Hafrafell with Kristínartindar on the left. There is a dust storm off the Skeidararsandur moving out to the east (right). This one still has the black space from the stitching process, but I like it better because you can see more of the lagoon than in just the little slice visible in the other version.

Skaftafellsjökull Panorama - Cropped

03 Sep 2012 68
(View at full size .) From the overlook at Sjónarnípa, looking across at Hafrafell with Kristínartindar on the left. There is a dust storm off the Skeidararsandur moving out to the east (right).

Capie Pleso Panorama

03 Jul 2012 53
(View at full size .) Pity the source images weren't a little bigger, then it wouldn't look like somebody sat on my panorama.

Szpiglaszowa Panorama 1

13 Jul 2012 31
(View at full size .) A full wraparound panorama, with the pass in the center, all of the Five Polish Lakes to the left, Morskie Oko and Czary Staw pod Rysami to the right. Hand-shot (no tripod).

Five Polish Lakes Panorama

13 Jul 2012 35
(View at full size .) All five lakes visible in one image.

Böttcherstraße

15 Sep 2012 36
(View at full size .) Note the wedding party on the balcony and the Bremer Stadtmusikanten statue on the roof.

Bremen - IR Panorama

St. John's Provost Church

26 Oct 2012 40
In the Schnoor district of Bremen, as seen through the bottom of a bottle. (Not really, but the pano software didn't seem able to get rid of the distortion).
