Glencolmcille is a classic, flat-floored, glaciated valley. Surrounded by the hills of South West Donegal, the mouth of the valley opens into the North Atlantic with a gorgeous sandy beach.

The Church of Ireland church sits in the middle of the valley floor with a commanding view of the whole of Glencolmcille.

 
There is an underground chamber or “souterrain” in the grounds just in front of the church. It is thought to have predated the current church by many centuries and to have been used as a place of sanctuary in times when the valley was attacked from the sea by Vikings raiders.
 
This is one of two stereographic images created from the same equi-rectangular panorama:

        Other Stereographic     with sky out:   and         the Equirectangular version :
                     

 
This is part of my postcard range. You can follow on to another gorgeous Very Ireland Post card .

This HDR (High Dynamic Range) panorama was created by combining 27 separate digital photographs covering every angle and with bracketed exposure. Hence there is detail both in the brightest parts of the sky and in the shadows.
 
The Source images were shot in groups of three Raw Mode images (exposure bracketed from +2 and -2 stops) on a Canon EOS 5d DSLR with a 16 mmm fisheye lens, and were stitched and blended using Hugin – a free open-source panorama stitching program. Hugin in turn invoked the program Enfuse to create the HDR effect by blending the exposures.

    i have no idea how you do this….but i like it !

  • Theodore, Thanks for the kind words. 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”
