Outer Hebrides, 2016 edition

I’m off to the Outer Hebrides again tomorrow, to do both photo & audio work, which unfortunately involves carrying quite a bit of equipment… Picked up the wheeled Peli 1510 to try to make it less painful, but the tripod is probably the worst bit. Really need to finally get round to some driving lessons when I get back!

For anybody googling the odd combination of terms, I can confirm that the ZED-10 does not fit in the 1510 with the dividers in.

PTGui Workflow

Another little PTGui workflow video, this one about 2 hours sped up to under 5 minutes.

Falkland Palace photospheres

I shot a whole bunch of photospheres around Falkland Palace earlier this month & am just getting around to working through them. Along with a dozen or so photospheres I took at Gladstone’s Land the following week, there’s a fair backlog for me to work through.

I had the idea earlier today to record the process, but unfortunately the actual photosphere was the less interesting of the two that I did today. Oh well, still fun to watch at 1600% speed!

North Uist Panoramas – Leacach An Tigh Chloiche

This was the final site I shot before leaving the island & was by far the most difficult to get to. It’s over an hour’s walk from the nearest road (well, a farmer’s track that turns off the road) & involves walking straight through a bog as there simply isn’t any way to get around. Wellies are a definite necessity & tbh waders wouldn’t go amiss. My boss on the island went out with me & had to physically drag me out when I placed one foot wrong & that leg disappeared up to the thigh O_o

The view from the top of the hill was worth it though, even if I had to squelch all the way up the hill & then all the way back to the car after the bog incident…

This is sort of like the classic cliché standing stone shot that most people that visit North Uist seem to take, except instead of taking it at Pobull Fhinn I took it up here so at least it’s slightly less repetitive.

If you click this Roundme image it will load the space & let you click between the 4x different panoramas & drag them with your mouse/finger to look around. Once it’s loaded you can double click to go fullscreen (highly recommended).

North Uist Panoramas – Caravat Barp

This wasn’t a particularly impressive site as Caravat barp is quite a low one that was also rather overgrown, but I tried a few different positions nonetheless. Click on the Roundme images to load the panoramas so that you can drag them around, double click once they’ve loaded to go fullscreen.

This one is from the top, so look down to see the stones of the barp around you.

This was some sort of wall/remnant of a structure to one side of the barp.

And here I was just drawn to the nice moss over the stones.

If you click this Roundme image it will load the space & let you click between the 3x different panoramas & drag them with your mouse/finger to look around. Once it’s loaded you can double click to go fullscreen (highly recommended).
