Description The Bunglas cliffs, in South West Donegal, Ireland are the seaward side of Sleive League mountain. The eroded face of the mountain top falls 601m (1972 feet) into the Atlantic Ocean. They are the highest cliffs in Ireland and are said to be the highest sea cliffs in Europe.In terms of Irish tourist attractions, the Cliffs of Moher may be more famous, however the cliffs at Bunglas are considerably taller and are now established on the tourist trail for any visitor who comes this far North.Sleive League is popular with hill walkers and ramblers. Many of them will walk up the “Pilgrim's Path” from the landward side, being rewarded when they crest the hill with a fabulous sea view. For those less committed to exercise and deferred gratification, there is a car park at Bunglas and they can drive the first 1,000 feet of the climb and, having parked the car, can then enjoy the sea view as they walk up the the second 1,000 feet.This photograph presents a more than 180° view, cropped from a full HDR panoramic image, stitched from multiple original shots. (Details below.)To get some idea of the scale you can pick out the path from the car park at the lower-mid-left of the image. The path winds around behind the photographer (we are at an elevation of about 1500 feet) and at the mid-right a walker can be seen breaking the horizon on his way to the summit. Techie Photographic DetailThe source images were shot in groups of three (bracketed with +2 and -2 stops) as Canon Raw images on a Canon EOS 5d with a 16mm fisheye lens. They were stitched and blended together using a free, open source, program called Hugin. Hugin in turn invokes a program called Enfuse to create the High Dynamic Range effect. Then this image was cropped out of the total panorama. It represents about a 200° view taken out of the 360 stitched panorama.
George Row, Derry Member Since December 2009 Artist Statement I've been a computer programmer, an academic, a website producer, but I've always been a Photographer. At present my specialty is Panoramic Photography. I like the challenge - after a decade of making panoramas I'm still learning!
My early 360° panoramas were for immersive virtual reality (on the computer). Now I'm exploring printing. The "stereographic projection" turns the immersive panorama into a "little planet"- as if the landscape's horizon was the edge of a globe.
I live in Derry in Northern Ireland my early panoramas were of Derry and its surroundings. My website veryderry.com provides a virtual tour of the city.
Now I’ve shot panoramas all over Ireland. I'll be adding them to my gallery.
