Kosciuszko Lookout Panorama

We took the chairlift at Thredbo yesterday and then trudged the 2km up to the Kosciuszko Lookout, which took surprisingly long given the small distance.

The original pano would print 3m wide if I wanted to.

    Dave.... Did you take this holding the camera in a landscape or portrait position?

    Ouch, I hop you have a free wall of that size. Must have been an awesome experience visiting the highest elevation of Australia
  • David de Groot said:
    Geoff, portrait orientation, think it was 19 shots or so.
    Garry, probably won't print it that size, but good to know I can if need be.
    'twas good to get back to this area, last time was 1986.

    I've been up there! I walked all the way up in sweltering heat, saw a wombat and some snakes, and took the lift down; although cycling down would have been more fun. An Irish chap I was sharing a room with at the Thredbo YHA had camped near the top during a thunder storm and said he was fortunate his tent didn't get struck by lightning!

    Striking panorama David! how many shots if you mind me asking?

    Cool shot Dave. We are thinking of going there next Christmas to get away from the Brisbane heat. Remember if you want to print big i'm your man, we have a HP large format latex printer that will print 1500mm by 30m if you want. or small if you want to go that way as well.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/tgr] Quite the adventure! Alas, the only wombat we saw this trip was roadkill. Saw plenty of roos and wallabies and even a Snowy Mountains Skink. Also managed to hit one grey roo on the way back to the motel after the starfield shoot, thankfully for us, the bullbar did it's job, not so good for the roo.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/matthewpost] I think it was 19. Will check when I get everything on my proper computer, this was a quick process on the laptop.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/14873548@N08] Awesome :) I can thoroughly recommend Thredbo, plenty of activities, a working chairlift (pretty much the only one that's working over the summer months), and excellent climate. Jindabyne may be a little cheaper, but there doesn't seem to be much in it.

    Wow! Great pano.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/42495072@N00] Thanks! Glad I got something, walking at altitude with 15kg of camera bag on your back takes it out of you.
  • -Gadabout- said:
    Hehe I think 15kg is too heavy at sea level !
  • David de Groot said:
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/42495072@N00] Well yes! I stupidly lugged an extra lens I didn't need and probably some other stuff too because I forgot to review the bag contents before setting out.

    Oops! You're unlikely to make that mistake again! :)
