The source images for this panoramic photograph were shot as Canon Raw images on an EOS 5D using a 16mm fish-eye lens.

This panorama was shot as part of the Limits event of the World Wide Panorama project. You can see there, in virtual reality, the full view at the top of the mountain. The method by which it was created is described in the section below headed: Techie Photographic and editing detail.

It was shot on the summit of Slieve Binnian mountain. At 747 metres this is the third highest mountain in Northern Ireland. Below Slieve Binnian to the west is the Silent Valley Reservoir.

The mountain’s name comes from the Irish: Sliabh Binneáin (meaning “mountain of the little peaks”) which refers to the rocky tors around the top of the mountain. This rugged crest of rocky tors makes Slieve Binnian easy to identify in views of the Mourne Mountains.

The reservoir supplies water to the population of County Down and to most of Belfast.

This panoramic image was shot through the mists on the mountain top. It was shot on one of the pinnacle tors. Other hill-walkers can be seen on an adjacent tor.

We had hiked to the top of the mountain, observing great views as we climbed, only to have a solid cloak of mist come in as we reached the top.

After sitting for 30 minutes hoping the mist would clear we started down, and sure enough about fifteen minutes down the mist started to clear … so we turned and raced back to the top arriving just as the mist returned!

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

Techie Photographic and editing detail
This image is an approximately 200° view cropped from a full 360° Equirectangular panorama.

The Full panorama was created by stitching 27 separate photographs shot as 9×3 bracketed exposures (+ and – 2 stops). The original photographs were shot as Canon Raw images on an EOS 5D using a 16mm fish-eye lens.

They were stitched together using Hugin an open source panorama creation program which in turn invoked the program Enfuse to create the HDR effect by blending the bracketed exposures.
