Today’s cameras and computers make taking a panorama picture relatively easy. It is actually a series of pictures taken side by side and then stitched together. As evidence of how nice they can be, I offer you two that I took on our New Zealand trip and stitched together at home.
The first is from an observation deck at Queenstown. The rainbow over the lake was nice enough to oblige Flash and Lafawnda as they looked out across Lake Wakatipu:
The second is from the world renowned Milford Sound centered on Mitre Peak. The “snow” on the mountains on the right is actually a glacier:
Now it is even easier with an iPhone. It will take the panorama on the spot and coach you on your sweep from left to right.
Technology definitely has its advantages in some areas of life!
