Behind the scene : how this panorama was madeFor safety reasons, some strict constraints were placed on taking this picture, no tripod was allowed and all equipment had to be landyarded to reduce the risk of objects falling 350ft to the roadway below.
My intention was to use a philopod but even with a substancial weight the stiff breeze at 500ft meant the philopod was all over the place! I eventually took the shots freehand.
Look closely and you can see some stitching but I still feel the effort was worthwhile!
