Behind the scene : how this panorama was madeI must admit that the pano is a very wide interpretation of the theme, but I had little chance between almost empty camp grounds and sleepy Medoc villages. There is a beautiful pine forest behind the dunes, but that would have been a boring forest only pano.
My attention was drawn to that black veins at the foot of the dunes where water emerged and the sand was partly black. When I found out that this was a kind of coal I decided for a sunset pano. I hope the beauty of the scene excuses the apparent distance to the original theme.
