I gave my self quite the headache with this image! My problems fell into two categories; technical and presentational.

“Is not the mountain far more awe-inspiring and more clearly visible to one passing through the valley than to those who inhabit the mountain?”Β Khalil Gibran

I might have mentioned before that I am currently using mobile-broadband to update and maintain this site. Quite frankly, it’s like using 56k dial-up (Remember those days?) that’s if I can get a connection at all.Β  The dream of being in the wilderness and updating the blog through the airwaves is not quite going according to plan! I wanted to post a lot more images from the Alps last week, but the best laid plans….

Still, if that’s all I have to worry about I can’t really complain.

My second problem was a presentational one – This image is a panorama comprised of 12 individual photographs. I wanted to do it as a technical challenge; to see if I could produce a high resolution image that I could print at really large scale if needed. Secondly, I wanted to capture the entirety of this section of the mountain range, to capture it’s grandeur.

Capturing and producing the image was a success, but the image is so wide that it doesn’t really present that well in the confines of this blog. (Images are restricted to 800px) As a compromise, I have included some crops from the large image for your perusal, as well as the completed panorama.

Hopefully my connection troubles are behind me and things will be a bit more regular this week πŸ™‚

[Update: Added a Colour close-up for those who prefer a splash of colour in their images πŸ˜‰ ]
