For today’s photo, I have gone back to my set of photographs from my hike up Sliabh Gullion Mountain.

While I was at the Summit of the mountain I thought it would be a good idea to take a few photographs and try to make a giant panoramic view of the surroundings of the mountain!

Luckily I decided to bring my tripod with me for the camera, it is best to have a steady surface when taking photographs that you want to stitch together, you get a much better result.

In total I took just 16 individual photographs and then I imported them all into Photoshop and used the automatic panoramic creator to make this panorama. When it was finished rendering I simply cropped the jagged edges from the sides of the photograph and ended up with the result below.

This panoramic view is the full 360 view around the mountain from the peak!

There is a full size version of this panorama available if you want to see it, it takes a while to load as it is about 30mb in size! To see it click here.
