A view from above

Recently I got hold of a 20ft pole for my panorama pictures, and I must say that viewing things from this height gives an extra dimension to the panoramas.

Judge for yourself:

The first one is a shot from the remains of a castle from the 17th century



click the picture to enter the interactive panorama
click and drag inside the panorama to look around
shift=zoom in; Ctrl=zoom out
for the best experience: click the full screen button once the panorama is fully loaded.


The second one is a shot from the castle in Amerongen, a small village at the border of the river Rhine.



Instructions as above.

Both shots were taken at the maximum height of the pole (20ft).
To minimize weight I shot both panoramas with the Oly E-P1 fitted with the Samyang 7,5mm FE lens mounted on an experimental panorama head, with a wireless shutter remote.
Both panoramas were stitched out of 8 pictures.

C&C welcome.


Karel

Very effective! Good use of the pole.

Thanks Karel, your panoramas are endlessly fascinating. In the first one, does the same couple appear twice?

Ciao ... John

Yes John, it is the same couple, well spotted.

Normally I try to avoid this, but as it was my first panorama with this setup, I was too busy with my 'balancing act' keeping it all in an upright position to pay attention....

Hi Karel,

Very impressing panoramas.The use of the pole gives something extra I think. I especially like the 'Hemmen' panorama. Good colours and nice light.

regards

Henk
