Thread: The annapurna range

  1. #1

    Default The annapurna range

    This is my first panoramic aerial picture made during a flight with an ultralight aircraft at an altitude of 14.500 feet. Its show a small part from the himalaya mountains, exactly the annapurna south.

    Enjoy it....



    On my homepage you can view it in a much bigger size!
    And for sure the original size is 10.000 x 2568 pixel

    It was made from 4 single shots, each shot with the amazingly sharp Nikkor AF-S DX 17-55mm/2.8 plus my Nikon D2Xs.
    A Kenyon KS-4 Gyro Stailizer was mounted under the camera.

    On istockphoto you will find it here:

    The story behind the picture is only in german so you wont be very happy with it, but if you like to read account on one's travel I got something from namibia in english for you guys:

    very cool shot and boy, so much technology!

    but i don't know, when i clicked on the thread i was really expecting to see sprawling space, etc
    mind sharing what focal length you use for the original 4 shots?
    the picture does not really work for me actually

    for some reason, i think there is a cramped feeling, the cropping is a little tight for me
    could well be personal taste,
    but must have been hard to do

    Hi,

    focal length from each single shot was 35mm
    exposure time 1/8000sec at f/2.8 and ISO 100

    Cheers,

    Wolfgang

    Very nice scenic shot, it give me a veyr cold feel and yet like 'I'm free' kind of feel.

    Beautiful scenery. The blue sky, the snow caps and the surrealness of all. Great shot

    great shot!

    its not easy to catch the annapurna with such sharpness on the plane, and a plane's usually the best place for it to be taken given its altitude
    chezburgr i can haz?

    It's a ultralight craft, or a 'motorised glider'. Hehe... Would love to fly in one of this one day. Haha...
