Aerial Panoramas

This page hosts aerial panoramic photos taken using my Mavic Pro drone. I take a series of high resolution photos in DNG raw format to cover a part or all of the horizon, and then stitch them together into a very large panoramic using Adobe Lightroom. These panoramas are very high resolution – typically 10,000 pixels across (or more) – so zooming in to see the detail can be very rewarding!

How to view

Click on one of the thumbnail images below to see the image edge-to-edge in your web browser. Click again on the image to zoom in to full resolution. At this point you can use your mouse or left/right arrow keys to scan back and forth across the full resolution image to look at the details captured by the drone’s camera. Widen your browser window to see more detail at once, or put your browser into Full Screen Mode to use all of your monitor’s resolution.

To return to this page to see more panoramas, use your browser’s “go back” function – usually a left-pointing arrow in the browser’s toolbar region. If you previously put your browser into Full Screen Mode, press the Esc key to exit that mode.
