Iceland II

This is the second time we visited Iceland. We did choose October for this year’s visit. Days were short, no 24 hours of sunlight this time. We were rewarded with a glimpse of the aurora borealis and some amazing landscaped in beautiful autumn colors. The puffins were long gone. So we did not bring any long lenses.

Swartberg Pass Panorama

Last weekend I reviewed some of my older images I took 2009 in South Africa. One 360° Panorama shot re-took my attention. Because the old „hot-stiched“ panorama hat some flaws, I processed the images again. Here is the result:

I’m really into this shot, because this is a real amazing landscape. You certainly need a 4×4 to do this drive. This picture was taken in the late afternoon under very windy conditions. To the right, you see the path to Prins Albert, the left side points to Oudtshoorn. The views are really amazing.
