This stereographic panoramic image shows a sculpture of a squirrel in Prehen Woods. It was shot in Spring 2011.This giant squirrel stands on the edge of a path through the woods.

Prehen Woods is a small wooded parkland area close to Derry City, N. Ireland. It has taken constant campaigning by local residents to protect the woods from threats of clearance for housing.

Once again the bulldozers and chain saws have entered Prehen Woods this week (February 2012) to destroy another corner of the woods to make way for more houses. A local campaign: No to housing development in Prehen Woods has a Facebook page and an online petition .

It is an ancient woodland dating back to 1600. The entire wood has “Tree Preservation Order” status. It is managed by The Woodland Trust

Photographic and Technical Details
The source images for this panorama were shot in Raw mode on a Canon EOS 5D with a 16mm Zenitar Manual Focus fisheye lens mounted via an EOS adapter.

They were taken as a set of 27 separate images in groups of bracketed exposure at 60° intervals. They were stitched and blended together using Hugin an open source panorama tool. Hugin in turn invoked MultiBlend to smooth the seams and Enfuse to create the High Dynamic Range effect.

  • Jane,
    Thank you and of course thanks for all the work you do running the group.
    The carving is larger than life-size … but with plinth and all it is only about waist-high. I shot it with the tripod legs all at minimum height, so Mr Squirrel was looming over the camera and looking like a huge super-squirrel! :-)
