I've popped extra postings in today and tomorrow which have nothing to do with my current Mono series. I took the photos for these two panoramas last week on my compact and this is the first time I have had a go at stitching, here using Elements 4. The top image had 7 shots and the lower one 5 shots.
This lovely North Leicestershire countryside is less than 5 minutes walk from my house. The wood is called Piper Wood, most of the land is high grade farm land, and lots of people enjoy walking here at all times of the year.
Now for the sad bit. This land is owned by the local Squire (yes we have one of those.) If he gets his way all of this will be turned into two golf courses, the farm buildings on the left of the top picture will be demolished to build a golf academy, and to the right of the wood will be a 200 bedroom hotel and conference centre. Needless to say the people of Shepshed are not happy about this but no doubt the local council will give him the go-ahead. The only consolation will be that presumably it will not then be available to cover in all these houses Gordon Brown reckons we are going to need.
