lens. These ancient stones are in the Shalwy Valley, near the village of "Kilcar:(see my photographs of Kilcar)":http://www.redbubble.com/people/VeryIreland/portfolio/Kilcar in the South West of County Donegal, the most North Westerly county in Ireland. A virtual reality version of this panorama has been featured as part of the World Wide Panorama project's "Heritage event(See the VR Version version - click through for Full Screen display)":http://www.worldwidepanorama.org/worldwidepanorama/wwp612/html/GeorgeRow-7616.html from where you can launch a "full screen Virtual Reality":http://www.worldwidepanorama.org/worldwidepanorama/wwp612/fullscreen/GeorgeRow-7616.html version. _Croaghbeg_ is a Megalithic stone structure known as a _"full-court tomb"_. It was uncovered and investigated by archaeologists between 1969 and 1973. That excavation revealed a long cairn - about 40m - with the two chambered gallery shown here, and a subsidiary chamber on the NW side of the court. The site is also sometimes referred to as _Pontabane Cairn_. (I *think* perhaps the hump that existed here before the excavation was called _"Pontabane Cairn"_ and what was revealed by the excavation was named _"Croaghbeg Tomb"._ But that is just speculation on my part.) Looking in you can see the massive stones that form the sides and back of the chambers. They are each about 2m in diameter. The lintel stones at the entrance and between the chambers are each about 2.5m wide and almost a metre thick. This is one of three Megalithic tombs in the Shalwy valley, which lies on the road from the fishing port of _Killybegs_ to "Slieve League":http://www.redbubble.com/people/veryireland/works/6338481-bunglas-highest-sea-cliffs-in-europe?c=2607-panoramas about 6km West of Killybegs and about 3km East of the village of "Kilcar":http://www.redbubble.com/people/veryireland/works/5917720-kilcar-main-street-sky-out?c=2595-donegal . Based on its style of construction it is likely that Croaghbeg was built about 6,000 years ago - about 1,000 years before work started on Stonehenge or the great Egyptian pyramids. h2. *History of this Image*   # *5th November 2016* View Count reached "11,000(see my other photographs that have been viewed more than 11,000 times)":http://www.redbubble.com/people/VeryIreland/portfolio/11000   # *18 th March 2015* View Count has reached "6,005(see my other photographs that have been viewed 6,000 or more times)":http://www.redbubble.com/people/VeryIreland/portfolio/6000+views   # *10 th January 2015* View Count has reached "5,010(see my other photographs that have been viewed 5,000 or more times)":http://www.redbubble.com/people/VeryIreland/portfolio/5000+views   # *1 st August 2014* View Count reached "4,000(see my other photographs that have been viewed more than 4,000 times)":http://www.redbubble.com/people/VeryIreland/portfolio/4000   # *15 th March 2014* View Count reached "3,003(see my other photographs that have been viewed more than 3,000 times)":http://www.redbubble.com/people/VeryIreland/portfolio/3000   # *28th January 2014* Added to "Featured(see my best photographs that have been featured by RedBubble)":http://www.redbubble.com/people/veryireland/portfolio/featured+photography Images by RedBubble   # *30 th July 2013* View Count reached "2,007(see my other photographs that have been viewed more than 2,000 times)":http://www.redbubble.com/people/VeryIreland/portfolio/2000   # *Monday 15th July 2013* Featured in the group "Ferns and Mosses Around the World(visit the Featured Images page of the group)":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/ferns-and-mosses its first group feature.   # *Tuesday 18th December 2012* View count reached "1,007(see my popular photographs that have been viewed more than 1,000 times)":http://www.redbubble.com/people/veryireland/portfolio/1000+views # *27th Sept 2012* view count reached 503   # *Friday 21st July 2012* View count reached 202.   # *Monday 9th July 2012* View count reached 102.   # *2nd July 2012* Stereographic panorama uploaded to Redbubble   # *24th June 2012* Source images shot in the Shalwy Valley   h2. *Photographic Method and Processing detail* The panorama was created by combining 27 separate digital photographs covering every angle and with bracketed exposure. Hence the HDR effect with detail both in the most brightly lit areas and in the shadows.   Eight separate “shots” were taken: six horizontal at 60° intervals, one down into the tomb and one up at the sky. Each “shot” was actually three bracketed exposures: a middle, a +2 stops and a -2 stops.   Hugin delegates the generation of the High Dynamic Range effect to a program called “Enfuse” which does the exposure blending it is a close cousin of the “Enblend” program that it invokes for blending the joins.   The Source images were shot in Raw-mode on a Canon EOS 5d DSLR with a 16 mm M42 fisheye lens, and were stitched and blended into a HDR Panorama using Hugin - a free open-source panorama stitching program.
