Blickling Hall Panorama

During our Norfolk holiday in June/July we called in at the National Trust property at Blickling Hall, it being not far from some relatives of Maureen's we were visiting later in the day.  Sadly the weather was pretty dire at the time but I decided to try this 4-shot, hand-held, panorama of the walk up to the main entrance of the house and am quite pleased with how it came out.  I will show you more of the house and gardens later in the autumn.

Yes...I think you should be rather pleased with this outcome, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I was Ray especially as it was drizzling with rain at the time.
This turned out beautifully, Brian - great job - and the sky is gorgeous!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, sadly the sky was rain sodden, indeed it was drizzling when I took these pictures.
This is a perfect hand held panorama Brian... and not a seam to be found... well done mate....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Peter.
very well taken, good composition
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.
Goodness Brian. We were at Blickling just last Wednesday. It's a fabulous place and the weather was fine. Big bummer though ... I left my camera at home.
Brian Walbey: We liked Blickling also but sadly it rained, even while I was taking this pano.. Slap your wrist for not taking the camera.

This is very good Brian: well worth your troubles
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris.
Very stately Brian - if ever I need to decide a day out or a tour of British heritage, I think I will refer myself to your blog without hesitation in future!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Fred, it is only just recently we joined the National Trust, but they are a good source of pictures, plenty more to come from various houses.

Perfect symmetry Brian - not a wobble in sight.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mike, and it was drizzling at the time so I done this in a hurry.

Superb!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Lisl.
I have never tried this stitching that can be done but my camera has this capability. Very, very nice.
Brian Walbey: My new little compact has in-camera stitching but this was the normal method of a few overlapping shots and bung them all into Photoshop and let it do the hard work!
You have made a fine job of it Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Bill, I did have a little help from CS3.
A handsome building, well presented
Brian Walbey: Yes it is Tom, sadly it was raining while we were there.
Very well presented, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Graeme.

Well done, Brian; no clue that this was a stitch or heldheld. What a grand building. It's fascinating to see the houses on the left with the chimneys and those on the right without.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. I seem to remember that the buildings on the right are outbuildings rather than houses, and if so chimneys wouldn't have been needed I suppose.
Very nice presentation of this beautiful building Brian! Well done.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, it was all done quickly as it was drizzling with rain at the time.
Such a fine pan. What a lovely spot to view.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a good spot for a panorama, but patience is needed to wait for everybody to disappear inside.
