Vancouver Panorama Photos

Lately I've been shooting specifically with the intent of stitching images together in post to make large panoramas, and thought I'd share a few with you from a recent trip to Vancouver...

The first was taken on a beautifully clear day from the BC Ferries terminal at Tsawwassen just south of the City of Vancouver, and is almost 30,000 pixels across stitched from 16 different frames in total. Below that is a crop to show some of the detail from the area marked in red in the panorama. The main Vancouver panoramic photo covers the skyline from West Vancouver to Port Moody, and includes Cypress Mountain, Grouse Mountain and Mount Seymour, the Cities of North Vancouver, Vancouver, Richmond, Burnaby, New Westminster and Coquitlam.

Here's another one from the Vancouver area, taken from a moving ferry. This is Howe Sound and the BC Coast Mountains. The large mountain right of center is Mount Garibaldi just north of Squamish BC:

Love the pano's especially the bottom one.
I have been thinking recently about trying that out again. Also some books have interested me in trying some medium format film photography. I can rent a hasselblad in town to try it out. Ben

Ben -

Shooting MF will definitely be a different experience to shooting with a DSLR! You're really forced to slow down and really think about every frame, and I think that really helps make you a better shooter. Have fun out there!

Very impressive. I've been thinking I should try some panos as well, haven't done them in years in fact the last ones I did had to be hand stitched.

Keep them coming!

Hey Kevin,

Thanks for the note, it's great to hear from you! The tools available these day make pano-life much easier. The Pano's I'm getting out of Photoshop's "Photomerge..." function are darn near perfect, though you have to be very careful when composing.

Cheers, Josh

I like the bottom pano the best Josh!

Agreed, the bottom one of Howe Sound is awesome. The top Vancouver city panorama is cool technically-speaking, but the Howe Sound one certainly catches the eye.

Cheers, Josh
