I mean, outside the raw experiences of your life?

I'm jumping ahead to July 18th 19th, when we walked for 4 1/2 hours in Malla Strict Nature Reserve, all the way to Kitsiputous, which one of the highest waterfalls in Finland. It was hot, over +25 °C, and almost no wind at all. Big biting insects were interested in the hikers.

I don't usually do panoramas, and the technical merit of this one is far from flawless, but I feel that this photograph hints at the open vistas all around us when we were walking on the Malla fells. The fells you see near the horizon, behind Kilpisjärvi lake, are part of Sweden.

The panorama was stiched from 22 portrait-orientation photographs in PTGui. These days some cameras have software which allows stitching panorama photographs straight in the camera, which might be rather nice to use in situations like this one.

Next, I'll return to the scheduled program with the postings, using photographs taken in Norway on July 17th 18th.
