SOME PANORAMA FAVOURITES...

Panoramas, where images are 'unnaturally' wide or tall, is a favourite topic of mine. Some of my best panoramas were captured impulsively and casually on a mobile phone (they do say that the best camera for a job is the one in your hand, and my phone is always nearby!) but when I plan ahead I may use my Canon DSLR, stitching individual images in Lightroom. More recently, I've been using a Mavic Air 2 drone for aerial panoramas, in which internal software stitches 180o or even 360o panoramas before the drone has even landed! For critical work I stitch the individual drone images using PTGui - this software is also used for terrestial panoramas usually taken with the aid of a gimbal tripod head. Above the thumbnails below, a red title indicates a dymanic panorama which can be moved (depending on your device) with your mouse or your finger. Dynamic panoramas require large files, so please be patient while they load.

Gold Rush Diggings
Gold Rush Diggings : It's hard to believe it now, but in the 1850's Golden Gully (near Hill End in the NSW Central West) was a hive of activity as desperate and greedy Chinese and European goldminers sought their fortune from the precious metal that periodic flooding deposited in this creek. The deep walls of the gully show (now dangerous) evidence of underground mines and creek bed fossicking which have led to severe erosion which rerouted Tambaroora Creek, so the gully is now dry.  Surprisingly, the gully is named not for the metal, but after the nearby wattle trees which bloom yellow in winter.  Like other formations, the walls of Golden Gully change colour according to the time of day. This panorama was photographed in the middle of the day, in Spring. [8068] (_D0A8068 Panorama-Plus.jpg)
