This pano was taken during the COVID-19 lockdown. It is the actual view from our little garden, which overlooks a lovely portion of the Langhe region, a UNESCO World Heritage site in north-western Italy. The photo you see is a pano resulting from merging 6 vertical shots. Edited in Adobe Lightroom Classic to represent the soft tones of that morning (7.20 am).

The photo you see here is a scaled-down version of the original file, a whopping 14,440px wide photo. Shot with a Nikon D810 and Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 @f/11 and ISO 64 on a Manfrotto tripod. Lee Filter’s Landscape Polariser and 0.9 GND helped me balance the contrasts and keep the harsh lights in the mid-distance from being blown out.
