Pamukkale, Turkey

Pamukkale, Turkey

Pamukkale is a fascinating natural wonder in South-Western Turkey. The sides of a large hill are covered in Travertine Terraces – calcium carbonate deposits left by thermal spring waters. I visited on an overcast day, so the photos I got don’t do the site justice. You’ll find plenty of photos online of snow-white slopes against bright blue skies… The drizzle...

Sweden

Sweden

I travelled to Sweden again this year for more Acrobatic Rock’n'Roll training with other members of the Cambridge University Rock’n'Roll Team. This team, we spent a day in Stockholm at the beginning, and a day in Vasteras at the end. Unusually for me, I didn’t take that many scenic/touristic photos, perhaps because I was with a group of friends. Or possibly...

An Insight Into Photostitching

An Insight Into Photostitching

The first step in creating a photostitch is to take the photographs. For this photostitch (The River Cam in the Mist at Magic Hour), I wanted to create as large an image as possible, so set my camera to maximum zoom – this would lead to more photographs being required to cover the subject matter. I then fixed the camera’s shutter speed, aperture, focus, and white...

Misty Magic Hour

Misty Magic Hour

Seeing that it was still foggy at midday when I headed out for some Christmas Shopping, I took my camera with the intention of getting some photos of Cambridge in the mist. Sure enough, as I reached the peak of Garret Hostel Lane bridge, the following pictoresque sight awaited me; along with several other people taking photos. This first photo is my favourite – it’s a...

Costa Rica – Panoramas

Costa Rica – Panoramas

I spent a few hours over Easter putting together some of the photo stitches that I took in Costa Rica. There are two stubborn ones which I’m not having much joy with (very wide angle both horizontally and vertically, so the resulting photo looks very fish-eyed). Here are five of the panoramas which came out great. You can scroll around the panorama in the Java Applet linked...

360 Degree Panorama of Cambridge in the snow

360 Degree Panorama of Cambridge in the snow

Well, it took 2 weeks to get round to finishing off the photo-stitch – it was a tough one, took several attempts, lots of manual tweaking, and it’s still not quite perfect, but good enough! There were 36 photos, and the final cropped panorama weighs in at 56 megapixels. You can scroll around the panorama in the Java Applet linked below. You can drag the view around with...

Cambridge Sunset Panorama

Cambridge Sunset Panorama

I took a panoramic view of a stunning sunset back in November 2005, viewed from Castle Mound in Cambridge. Lord knows why I waited a year to stitch together the photos. I only stiched about 340 degrees of the view, so don’t have a full wrap-around, but there were 40 photos, resulting in an output file weighing in at a hefty 108 megapixels. I’ve cropped it down to 70...

Panoramic Photos from Italy

Panoramic Photos from Italy

I travelled around Italy in September 2006, and took lots more photos, including a few sets of photos which stitch together to form panoramic views. I took two 360 degree panoramic views, in Venice and Sienna, which are shown in Java Applets below. You can drag the view around with your mouse, or use your keyboard’s arrow keys. Pressing – or + lets you zoom out or in,...

Hi-Res Panoramic Photos

Hi-Res Panoramic Photos

During my trip to South Africa, I took several sets of photos at various stunning vistas, which I would stitch together back home. Well, now that all the other photos have been tweaked and added to CantabPhotos, I’ve started stitching some of them together (I use the open source stitching software Hugin, along with Autopano). At Blyde River Canyon, I had taken 19 photos at 8...
