Widdop Reservoir on a summer’s eve

pano_widdop_dam_evening_1500px

Another view of Widdop Reservoir and the dam on a beautiful summer’s evening. I’d come here to carry out another photoshoot for a friend, but this vista (one of my favourites in the Pennines) was too good to leave with capturing in in 360°.

Cottongrass views

Swathes of bog cotton, or cottongrass, carpeting the hills on a warm summer’s evening. Caught sight of this on the way home and had to snap while the sky was so turbulent. Just lovely.

Just in time: watching the sun sink behind the hills

Pretty in the pink – my birthday at Bare Arts

My 34th birthday celebrations at Bare Arts: enjoying good tunes, good ales and great company in Todmorden’s finest licensed outlet. My mate Tim and I are sharing the laptop to DJ in this shot. I’m quite impressed I was able to shoot this after enjoying the delights of the beer selection for so many hours 🙂

Early evening in Heptonstall

The ruins of the old church at Heptonstall, near Hebden Bridge, on a warm sping evening.

There’s a sense of things coming full circle with this photo. I first shot this scene in April 2007 with my first generation of panoramic kit, and was pleased with the results at the time. I’ve since been using the second generation kit for almost two years; but have recently upgraded my kit and updated my workflow radically. This third generation setup seems like the pinnacle of lightweight yet extreme quality panoramic photography: this is the first full spherical I’ve shot with it, and I love the amazing detail, wide tonal range and that lens flare … really nice!

Shot with Canon EOS50D, Sigma 10mm f2.8, Nodal Ninja w/R-D8 rotator, stitched with PTGui 8.1.
