  1. This photograph was Featured for the first time in the RedBubble group “If it Doesn’t Belong”.

This stereographic panorama was shot from the rath (an ancient circular hill-top earthwork fort) at Roxborough overlooking Teelin Bay in South Donegal , Ireland.

This bronze-age dwelling place is known locally as the “Fairy Fort”. As is often the case with such ancient sites it has a commanding view of its surroundings.

The Atlantic Ocean lies to the left of the scene, beyond Teelin Harbour at the mouth of the bay. The village of Carrick lies to the right.

The mountain wreathed in clouds is Slieve League , (Irish: Sliabh Liag) the seaward side of which takes a precipitous fall into the sea, creating the highest sea cliffs in Europe .

To shoot this panorama the tripod was perched on the walls of an ancient rath – a circular structure of stone and earth. The stones of the wall of the rath can be seen showing through the grass at the centre of the panorama. Its interior is filled with a strong growth of ferns, making the lighter green area in the lower central part of the picture.

Because of the way that it was created this is a very high resolution image (the equivalent of about 80-megapixels). It is 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”


  1. The panorama was created by combining 24 separate digital photographs covering every angle and with bracketed exposures. Hence the detail has been captured both in the brightest areas of the sky and in the shadows on the opposite side of the bay.

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