Panoramas. A collection. A collaboration.

I am hoping to instigate everyone to contribute one or many of their favorite Panoramas from rides throughout our beautiful planet.

I used to go through the painstaking process of creating a panorama quite rarely because adjusting the levels and contrast of each shot was nothing other than a PITA. I recently got a Canon S50 which has a awesome Pan feature which essentially locks the lights levels to the first pic you take, thus assembly is a snap. It still requires some photoshop magic, but the time and effort needed has been dramatically reduced. None of the following are perfect, but I only spent 5 minutes a piece creating them. The pics below range from 3 shots to 7 shots to create the panorama.

The first 5 were taken on the same road. Highway 103 from Evergreen to Idaho Springs:

Near Squaw Pass:



Approaching Echo Lake. The flatlands can be seen on the horizons.


Approaching Idaho Springs:


The next two are in the 11 mile canyon just west of Pikes Peak near Colorado Springs:






I find that these shots capture the essence of the environment with the power to almost make you believe you were there. Well, not really, but almost.

Please share your pans, comments and opinions.

I picked up an S400 about 3 weeks ago - the panoramic feature sure does make life easier ... now if they would only allow more than 15" for time exposure...

this was one of the first(maybe the first) panoramics I shot with it.


here's a large version

now with some bikes...


big version

Actually, your Elevenmile Canyon pictures are not of Elevenmile Canyon. They are the South Platte area above Elevenmile Reservoir. The Canyon is BELOW the Reservoir and looks like this

did a mountain bike loop today & shot this at the top of the trail. lighting wasn't great, but there aren't any seams in the photo & all I did was run the raw pics through the Canon software & reduce the size in Photoshop for this posting.

Great stuff guys, here's some Kiwi panoramas

This is the view from my home.

I've had to reduce the quality a lot to get it under 160k.
Is there any way around this? SmugMug I s'pose.

My turn...

Here's a dry lake just before the ghost town of Balarat in Death Valley National Monument.


A little further south is the Trona Spires State Park.


Canon S30 using panorama mode and Photostitch to put it together.

Hey Nachtflug! There's lots of wacky scenery in DV!
