This 360° panoramic image was shot on top of Ferryquay Gate in Derry’s City Walls. It was created with a method that simulates the view of lens with a 6mm focal length on a 35mm camera.

It is a favourite image of more than 10 people.

The city walls of Derry were built and rebuilt in the seventeenth century. They gained historic significance when the city was besieged for 105 days in 1689.

The cobbled path stretching straight into the image is the upper surface of the walls. They are one of the few examples in Europe of completely intact city walls. (Admittedly there is one break in the walls at Newmarket St). The complete circumference is about one mile.

Walking around the City Walls is one of the standard things for tourists to do when they visit Derry and is something that many local residents have never done!

The building towards the top right with the scaffolding in front and the crane working overhead is The Playhouse a local community arts centre and theatre. It is based in an old school building and at the time the photograph was taken was under-going a restoration and renovation that is now complete.

To the right is Ferryquay Street one of Derry′s traditional shopping streets. It ends with the green spire on “Austins” which claims to be “The oldest department store in Ireland”. Towards the bottom left we are looking over the red-brick of Foyleside – one of Derry′s modern shopping centres.

The cream coloured building towards the bottom right with the red and black sign is a popular local restaurant called: “Halo Pantry”.

                        Panoramic views of Ireland      
 

The panorama was created from twenty seven separate digital photographs, covering every angle and with bracketed exposures. They were combined into a single high-resolution, panoramic, high dynamic range image.

The source images were shot on a Canon EOS 5d DSLR with a 16mm fish-eye lens and stitched and blended together using Hugin, a free open source program.

Because of the way that it was created this is a very high resolution image (the equivalent of about 80-megapixels). It′s capable of delivering very fine detail even when printed at massive sizes.

I have written a short journal entry introducing the method by which these panoramas are created, it is called:
“Creating a Stereographic Panorama – the Basic Idea”

I have three collections here of stereographic panoramas like this one, they are panoramas of:

        Donegal           Derry
   
      The Aran Islands
