Mt. Washington Panorama

Mt Washington Hotel

This week’s WPC, ephemeral, got me thinking as I drove to the White Mountains today that it would be one of the last times I’ll be making snowy photos for a bit. Thus, I took a tour to go out on a high note. Over the next week, the results of today’s activities will be posted here.

This image came about because I recently read about Microsoft ICE, a free, downloadable application that can stitch together a series of photos to make a panorama. I’ve made images from this location before. It is Mount Washington and the Mount Washington Hotel as viewed from the hotel parking lot across the road. I put my camera on a tripod to keep the shots at the same level and made a series of four overlapping images. I then edited the exposure in the same fashion for each. ICE did the rest, pretty much…I had a few choices.

      Oh, thank you. I’ve wanted to try making a panoramic photograph for a while but don’t use Photoshop. This is a great, no-cost, easy way to make them. Thank you, again – Cheers.

    Thank you….If you get the right day, the perfect location is so easy. ICE is pretty cool. And not to get all musical on you or anything but “ICE,ICE BABY” 😉

    So… I need to look into this Microsoft Ice. We go out into the high country of the desert quite often. Using this could help show what I actually see “out there in them thar hills!” 😉
    Nice panoramic by the way!

    Thank you…It is worth checking out and would be great for where you live. The demo I saw online showed it in a plaza in Germany and it was very cool. I had to download some plug-in and then ICE…both were from Microsoft. Then I uploaded the jpg images. You need some overlap in the images, like a third to the image. That allows the software to line them up. If you want I can send you a link to a video about it from Tony Northrup.
