This 360° panorama was taken at twilight on the shoreline of Lough Foyle between the town of Moville and the fishing port of Greencastle on the Eastern coast of the Inishowen peninsula in County Donegal, Ireland. In the nineteenth century Moville was the final embarkation point for many emigrants who left this area for a new life in America.
The panorama is shown here using something called a “Stereographic Projection” which renders the 360° image as if the tripod was a low-flying helicopter and the horizon of the flat panorama was the edge of a tiny globe over which it flew as the globe floated in an encircling sky.
The panoramic image was created by combining 27 separate digital photographs covering every angle and with bracketed exposures. Hence the detail has been captured both in the brightest areas of the sky and in the shadows between the rocks. The photographs were shot under pressure as the tide came in, widening the gaps between the rocks on which the tripod stood.
This image also appears in a calendar available on the Cafe Press website.
Because of the way that it was created this is a very high resolution image (the equivalent of about 80-megapixels). It′s capable of delivering very fine detail even when printed at massive sizes.
It can be printed so large that it tests the limits of Imagekind′s framing service. You could have it printed at: - 24″x24″ and frame it with a 4″-6″ mat - 36″x36″ and frame it with no mat, or with one up to 2″ - 36″x36″ on canvas - 44″x44″ on paper and have it framed elsewhere.
At sizes up to 24″ square it will look good. At the larger sizes it is a real stunner!
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.
