The Glacial Valley of Glaisdale

This awesome, sweeping valley, as seen from Glaisdale Head, so typical of those in, and around the North Yorkshire Moors, is easy to reach by road, either from Lealholme or high Glaisdale village. The origins of the stone walls date back many centuries when the land was devided into "tythes", an ancient form of measurement that was used to raise revenue for the parish.

If you have the time, there is much to see if you zoom right in :) This photo is the result of six seperate images from the same viewpoint and merged in Photoshop 3 to give fine detail in focus. I found no need to use a tripod at this focal length..Any one with a steady hand can do this, even without built in image stabilisers..The trick is ensuring that the next shot overlaps the previous one by around 15%. Remember to use recognisable landmarks in each frame. I am more than happy to divulge the rather complex procedures which you will need to follow in order to transform your wonky panoramic into something that you can be happy with. The power of PS3 is awesome.
