For ten years, ever since I received a free copy of PhotoVista software, I've been creating multi-image stitched panoramas using a variety of techniques. The expanded view of the panorama format captures the world the way I see it, and the newest cameras and software reveal details that might otherwise escape the eye.
Some of my earliest attempts are included in this collection, and it was success with those pictures in 2001 that convinced me I could capture just about any scene.
A few vertical panoramas can be found here. Where indicated, images are also presented in a zoomable format, to allow close-up exploration. To use the zoom feature, you will need to install the latest Flash plugin.
