Dead; not my corner of the internet – this is just pining for the fjords, but my poor walking boots.


A couple of thousand miles.
Five countries.
Three-and-a-bit years.
Three mountain ranges.
Two continents.
One dead pair of walking boots.

Spending the Royal Wedding bank holiday wandering around the Scottish Highlands including Ben Nevis finally finished them off. The laces snapped at airport security and a gash in the side opened up descending the Ben. The soles have leaked since January.

Panoramic Canada

Back in July 2008 I took far too many photographs while I was in Canada. I’ve finally got around to sorting out some of the panorama shots from the lakes in Jasper national park.

These two panoramas were stitched together from 6 or 8 individual photographs with Hugin. The first isĀ  Maligne Lake from the north shore looking south, the second is looking east.
North shore of Maligne Lake, looking South East shore of Maligne Lake, from the west shore.

Both images are around 45 megapixels, and show quite a lot of detail. Click the thumbnails above for full size.
