Northern shore of Teletskoe lake

Lacking the habit, I rarely shoot panoramas. I find it too alluring to see how the image will appear immediately, and too hard to convince myself that everything will turn to be right in the frame not now, but sometime later. So I get down to panorama, only when I feel the angle of view is not wide enough and with a wider lens the shot might have been better. It was one of those cases, when I realized that either I will make the image out from multiple shots, or won’t make it at all.

By that time I had already shot all the obvious scenes around the second camp of our Altai journey, so I was searching for other interseting subjects. This little gulf on the shore of Teletskoe lake turned to be the one of them, but none of the single shots I made had a perspective that good landscape photographs often demonstrate. The perspective that pulls you into the frame. And at this moment I realized two things:

  1. I will have to buy wide lens some day,
  2. There’s no other way than merging panorama for this scenery.

Landscapes and scenery photo. The panoramic image of the northern shore of Teletskoe lake. Altai, Russia.

I have to admit that I’ve been delaying the processing of this image as long as I could, but it’s been finally finished.
