Over the Hills and Far Away

Panoramas allow me to capture the grandeur the vast outdoors has  . . .

There are a number of different programs which do panos, one being a leap from Lightroom to the pano functions of Photoshop, MS ICE (image composition editor), and so on.

Most people do panos in digital.  I like to do it with film, too, as it is a bit of a challenge – and it requires a  bit of thought . . . after all, there is only so much film, far less than the room on an SD card!

And here we are:  A 5-image pano of the poppy fields at the California Poppy Reserve last March, in the 50mph winds.   The middle of the image doesn’t look too bad when smallish, but if you click on it twice, you will see a lot of blur in the center.  Not a fab job, but the job it does is there – it shows you the stunning beauty of the fields.  With less wind, the picture would have been a lot more successful.
