This panorama was created while standing on the median of a major bridge in the city of Moscow.

The bridge over the Moscow River takes you from the busy Moscow downtown to a quieter part of the Russian capital, known as Kolomenskoye, named after the Kolomenskoye Estate located there.

The bridge is the border between business life and peaceful Kolomenskoye, which during the 15th century was chosen as the site of a royal summer retreat. Now, this old park with one of the most beautiful churches and a remarkable alley of ancient oaks (the oldest in Moscow, which are as old as 400 to 600 years of age) is a popular site for a spot of summer sunbathing or a snowy walk in the winter. Just get in a car or jump in the metro and cross the border between two parts of Moscow…

Equipment:
Canon 10D, PELENG 8mm Fisheye lens, 4U frames.

To eliminate the photographer’s shadow, I took two identical shots standing on both sides of the camera (as a result I got my shadow in two different places), and then edited the two shots to produce a shadowless frame.

This panorama was made without the use of a tripod and panoramic head. Instead, I used my own patent-pending invention – a two-string plumb bob and a leveling bubble (description in Russian only and drawings of this device can be found at: http://qtvr.by.ru/qtvr.htm
