Panoramic Winterscapes

Some people didn't get much snow this year.

We got our fair share, so I will share some with you!

These panoramic winterscapes are for those who missed the winter wonderland.

I hope you enjoy them. (requested by Bethany)

This photo is the field behind our house. I would have loved to get more foreground, but it was covered in ugly snowmobile tracks.

The above photo won't let me expand it. It is the same field but covered in hoarfrost. The lighting was just lovely.

I love shooting panoramas. I take individual shots and stitch them together (haven't tried shooting with the cameras panorama setting yet). They don't display well to see the details because of their width, so I think I am going to start shooting them in 16:9 aspect ratio instead.

Thanks for your request Bethany...I hope you and others enjoy them!

I want to try printing some of these on canvas. If I printed them full size they would be about 3' x 6-12' (HOLY INK OLY)!

Thank you so much, Laurie! These are all beautiful, and I love the colors in #3. I haven't tried panorama mode with my new camera, so this is good motivation to go grab my manual and figure out how it works!

Can I suggest changing your camera's aspect ration to 16:9?
I don't want to discourage you from shooting panoramic, but the 16:9 ratio will display much better online.
Try it both ways, I am going to start shooting most panos in that ratio instead of stitching.
I think it's fun to get to know all of the modes in your camera, even if you don't use them often.

I agree about #3, the light was just luscious coming around the bend and filtered through the clouds. I wanted to print it, but the WHOLE top of it has sensor dirt on it. Unfortunately, the lighting changed before I detected it, so I couldn't retake it. I had to clean my sensor 3 times to get the gunk off. (have no idea how it got that dirty)

Of course! smile That's a great idea, and I would love to be more systematic about trying different modes in the camera. I just learned how to change the aspect ratio in Lightroom last week, and I had no idea I could do it in my camera too! Good to know.

Most cameras have several aspect ratios. I haven't tried it in this camera, so it will be interesting.

I have a really neat winter pano of the river I'll post when I find it.
I want you to get your fill of snow before spring!
