Some shots froma recent trip to Langdale in the Lake District of England

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"first 2 are panoramics of a small lake/tarn called blea tarn



i really wanted to include the tree as i loved the way it looked

next is a view from the waters edge



its a lovely tranquil place to sit and dwell upon things, just far enough from the hustle and bustle of life



as allways they are stitched by hand in adobe cs2 to get best results and these are just tiny for web use

Well done Gary! You really do justice to the landscapes you shoot with your excellent skill I wonder if you might have preferred to use the UWA lens foran occasion, or just considering the trouble:-)Anyway, both are breathtaking stitchworks with their own merits!

hi mate thanks for comment

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"UWA = ultra wide angle??

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"if so i cannot find wider than what i have on my oly e300 which is 14 to 45 which i believe is 28 to 90 in digital terms

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"id love a wider one but as far as i can remember the panos where shot at 14 (28) and still cannot capture the width of the view, you do get huge amounts of distortion at image edges, that takes a bit or sorting with transform/skew

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Gary

Great pictures from the poets' district. Burns and ..., oh my memory. They were a bunch. Nice to see your pictures from the landscape that formed so many great poets

Here's an outlying one to try - the Sun Inn in Bassenthwaite village with Jennings and other brews. The top ofSkiddaw's north-west ridge is peeping over the pub sign.
