Cornwall has many of the worlds most beautiful gardens. But when I saw some scaffolding going up I decided I'd rather have a nice view. I am actually resting the tripod on the top of a chimney (it has a flat slate on top rather that a pot like the others).

Usually I use a nikon fc-e9 fisheye adaptor on my fuji s602z and a bophoto.com grip which is ok for small quick panos but I did not think it would get up to full screen with only 3mp. So I did it the hard way and used my panosaurus to take 92 pictures around, 5 rows of 18 one up and down, of which I used 86. The bottom half auto stitched with no trouble at all but the sky was rather a nightmare and still is not perfect. But theres not much of interest up there anyway.

You start off looking south east at a distant flat horizon were the sea is sometimes visible of Falmouth bay. But it is merged into the sky on a sunny day like today. Turn to the right a bit and above the yellowing field the horizon is the Lizard land mass. Just visible between two large trees across the lawn. To the right of the strip of Lizard is a small pinhead dot sticking up which is one of the Goonhilly satelite dishes, around a hundred feet tall.
