Behind the scene : how this panorama was madeI shot this panorama twice, once on june 18 and once on june 21. The weather was hazy the first time but the forecast was uncertain, hence I decide to jump at the chance.
Saturday was much better, hence I went up once more. Featureless blue sky this time. Previously I played with vertically compressed and mirrored panoramas effectively giving two "little planet" versions at zenith and nadir. I placed the wednesday "little planet" in the sky region of the second panorama and let enblend do a seamless blending.
There was a second event I had to visit this evening: the solstice fire at the Freiburg vivarium Mundenhof. A huge pile of wood collected the whole year was burnt there and people where running and dancing around. An elevating experience as well and a very difficult subject to shoot due to ever changing brightness of the flames...
