This was my first goal on reaching the lake Sunday morning – shooting a panorama. I’ve shot several at this same location; it’s a very photogenic spot and it’s physical layout lends itself well to panoramas. Especially so at this time of year, when the sun rises almost directly behind the center of the hill.
The image above covers a full 180* view, comprising 26 photos shot vertically and stitched together in Photoshop. In retrospect, I wish I’d lowered the tripod closer to the snow and shot from a lower perspective. But even so, I’m happy with this one – it’s the shot(s) that made shivering in the cold worth while.
