Longshaw Panorama

Blog Posted on 21 Mar 2012


The high pressure systems that have brought us this mild, dry, spring often mean a soft, diffused skies and murky vistas often without much interest for photography. However, driving past Longshaw last week in late afternoon, I saw that the sun was just a disk through clouds and, standing near the Wooden Pole, the trees below receded progressively away.  I took two shots (Nikon D700 & 24-70 @70mm) and later stitched them together in Photoshop. The result captures the end of a soft, quiet day in near monochorome.  A good rule of composition is to place the main point of interest off-centre, but for this image it seemed nowhere but dead centre was right for the sun.
