Today’s a little, or better, wide follow-up to my last post, “Saana, you’re looking good today” which featured a panoramic image which I took during my last trip to Norway.

In fact I did two slightly different versions of this image: my favourite, and planned version which I posted in my last blog, and one with a little more view to the left of the mountain Saana. Since the images were taken with the same settings I had the idea of merging the two different versions, to one longer version, hoping to be able to show a little more wideness of the scenery.

Saana - Take Wide

One issue that I have generally with panoramic images on the web is the presentation: depending on the format and size of the image, the image tends to become very small when presented on the web. In an older post, I tried a solution with posting an panorama in form of a video, and as flash-based version of the image, with the video working best as of this moment.

Recently I was reading National Geographic’s iPad app, which inspired me to try a different solution, which I in fact like best so far.

Surely the composition is not entirely balanced, but then again, it wasn’t supposed to be presented like this. Take it as a proof of concept.

I hope you do enjoy the presentation of this image as and if you run into any issues please let me know.

UPDATE:

I have changed some things which make some other things to not work anymore. Trying to figure something out.

UDPATE 2:

Decided to make a video:

  1. Beautiful images, Sven. Love the soft sunlight on the snowy mountain top and pastel skies. What plug-in or widget did you use for the scrolling pano?

    • Hi Chris!

      Thanks a lot for your comment. The light indeed was very nice that morning. The scrolling is simply an iFrame. Very easy to do.

  2. Love it!…makes you focus on the image in a completely different way.
