This 360° stereographic panorama was shot at the top of the cliff above Malin Beg beach in South Donegal, Ireland.
The panorama was created by combining 24 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 under the cliff.
The sheltered crescent shaped bay leads out into the Atlantic Ocean. The mountains to the left lead over to Sleive League with its highest sea cliffs in Europe. To the right a little way around the coast lies Glencolmcille. Even on a warm summer‘s day there is a chill to the Atlantic water.
Here the cliffs are more manageable thanks to the steps from the car park at the top to the beach. In this photograph they run from the “six o′clock” position around the central circle of the image to the beach. Every time we visit we count them and every winter we disagree as to the number. I THINK it was 168!
In the full sized version of the image two tiny swimmers can be seen bracing the Atlantic chill - not too far out. (For those who know them yes it was MKM and KD!) A group of their friends are standing on the beach cheering them on.
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 print it 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.
