Skywatch Friday: Panoramic Sunset



This is the first time I have used the "Panoramic Assist" Scene mode on my Nikon Coolpix, I used it in conjunction with Panorama Maker 4 which comes with the Nikon Software CD Rom.

This was the the sunset taken from my bedroom window two days ago, as you can see the snow hasn't melted yet and I bet it won't for some time.

That's beautiful, Jane. We had an old Advantix camera with a panoramic ability, and it was such a treat to be able to take shots like these. Now I achieve them by taking normal size and cropping!
Thanks for your comment. It's about minus 4 here, but was minus 17 in Oxfordshire last night! It sure is COLD, whatever the official readings say! At least your snow makes for such wonderful photos! Here we have more ice than snow.
Have a good weekend,
Janice.

Awesome! Love the wonderful colors!

Jane said...

@ rennschnecke, thanks it would-you can see the join though.

Thanks Janice, yes I heard on the news about Oxfordshire being the worst hit, I think its minus 6-8 here at this moment, I had two advantix camera's ( they are still hanging around somewhere) I like the fact that the film cartridge was never seen and that as a result it was never damaged by sunlight or anything-used to pay the odds for processing though and they messed it up.

Thanks everyone:)

Beautiful, I like the light espcially. Although, I confess, I am hoping the snow melts soon despite it making pretty photos.

I love the horizontal-ish slash of orange through the grayness above and below. Congrats on using the "Panoramic Assist" mode on your camera for the first time. It turned out beautifully!

Jane said...

Thanks Pat:) I hope to try it out again sometime.
