This panorama fits into a time lapse sequence. I shot it together with my brother. See his panorama here. I shot this one 26 minutes after his initial shot.

Making Of

The shooting was done with a 3.15 meter (app. 10.33 ft) pole to reach a more elevated viewpoint above the ground. The lens was mounted with a custom made bracket which allows mounting the lens to turn around the no-parallax point of the lens. I took three exposures at every direction and used exposure fusion to combine the different shots.


  • Camera: Sony Alpha 700
  • Lens: Sigma 8mm f/4 Fisheye
  • Mounting: Custom made lens bracket on two monopods
  • Software: BibblePro, PTGui Pro, Smartblend, Gimp, Pano2VR
