Duranbah Panoramic 01/5


As a landscape photographer I am always looking for something different to photograph. Duranbah is a little surf beach just around the corner from the world famous Snapper Rocks, it must be the way the beach faces but it almost always seems have a good wave. The reason I chose this angle is it gave the beach a sense of space which when you arrive at the car park is what you can see, a few scattered rocks on the left and a headland then a break wall on the right of the beach but mainly just sand and space.

This image is a 14 image stitch which could have been cropped to a 4:1 ratio but I liked the 3:1 better so that was the final result I went with.

Hope you like it

I find really wide coastal panoramics quite often don’t work due to weird curving of the coastline but this turned out great. Looks like the horizon tilts up on the left a bit ?

Thanks Matt i am loving this super wide look but it really doesn’t work on every image and the colours i am getting out of the 5D are pretty dam good but i put a guide down and yeah it does slope down the slightest little bit to the left of screen but i think that is because it is so wide.
