Taken from the 45th floor penthouse at The Pan Peninsular - Canary Wharf - this panorama covers the West and South West of the City.
I must give a big thank you to the team at Rokstone Property especially Shana Edwards who facilitated my access to the property to take 2 fantastic views of London.
See the final panoramic image here: gigapan.com/gigapans/180435
with all rendering and colour corrections.
The penthouse is a gigapanographers dream location with 8 balconies. All donations welcome please - I would love to be able to afford to live there. Sigh.
The weather wasn't on my side so I had around a 6 hour window to capture what I could. This was the first of 2 panoramas (850 shots) with the second which I'm working on now being larger (1,300).
Theres lots to see in both of them with plenty of famous landmarks as well. There are 2 more small views that I hope to be able to return to take which when combined with the current ones will give a complete 360 degree view.
QUESTION? Why do crane drivers all over the world start moving them when we start taking Gigapans? Maybe it's a conspiracy in the Crane Drivers Union!

    These are live animals in a pen.

    Do you have a clue for us? Like, are they small ceramic animals on a widow sill, or maybe Llama stickers stuck on a back window of a car, or actual animals?

    Frank, it would be an understatement to say that you have captured some detail in this impressive London panorama ... 13.5GB is a far larger file size than I could have ever attempted with my robot and point-and-shoot, which was only capable of a thousand photos at max because of the battery limitation. Looking forward to seeing more of your vistas.
