For inspiration, I like to get out and up and enjoy the view when I get there. I've been capturing scenic beauty in panoramic images for about 6 years. I use a standard modern digital camera and stitching software to produce them and Photoshop to tweak the results on my computer.
I've posted images from Walpole New Hampshire and from the South Coast of Massachusetts. You can see many of my images on my website at www.brianshriverphotography.com in high resolution. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to correspond with me about these images.
I've also done some 360 degree panoramas that can be enjoyed in "virtual reality mode". Paste this url into your browser: www.360cities.net/profile/brianshriver Enjoy!
