Somewhere in great nature, hidden

The Panasonic LX100 has a sweep panorama function, in which you move the camera across the view and the camera takes a succession of photographs and generates a panorama out of the individual frames. Today I tested it out, and at first the results were disappointing, because for some reason the exposure changed in the middle of the series, and thus the resulting photographs were vertically striped.

Then I tried setting the initial exposure in the bright part of the view half-pressing the shutter button, moving the camera to the end of the panorama sequence, and then starting the exposure. This worked much better, and here you see the best of the resulting panoramas. The place is lake Tränuhals, in Meiko, and the view is about 180°.

Nothing to brag about, but reasonably good nevertheless. The size of the photograph is 8176 x 1920 pixels, plenty of details to look in the original file at Flickr.
