There’s something about a big photograph. It draws the eye, it has presence, it can fascinate, it can impress.

I’ve rediscovered panoramas.

These images are from Castle Espie, Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust centre in County Down and were taken over the last week or so.

I’m enjoying doing something different. Most of the images I produce are destined for stock while panoramic photographs are meant to be printed big and hung on walls.

I’m also getting to use my Canon 5D2 rather than the little Panasonics. The Panasonics are great when you have to carry a camera for hours shooting general stock. The Canon is more suited to this work and it’s like working with an old friend again.
