My biggest stitching project is this, the last view of the Olympic Ski Jump Hill of Holmenkollen, Oslo, before it was razed in 2008 later to be replaced by a Danish(!) design.

Nikon D3, Voigtländer 125 mm f/2.5 APO-Lanthar, 140 single frames. The machine I ran the stitching on (a Mac) struggled for a while .... :D

Of course mainly a document of the former glory, nothing spectacular in vision terms, but historical memories need to be saved some way or other.

This is a 360 degrees fish-eye panorama stitched together by about a dozen photos :)

Another, the seaside front view of Oslo, capital of Norway. If you look closer in the background, on the hillside to the left, you'll detect the Ski Jump from the last post. This was taken the last summer of its presence,  using a Nikon D3 and the AFS 200/2 Nikkor, 8 frames from a sailing vessel, so matching up the frames later was "complicated".

A view I believe is familiar to some of the NG members, though normally not seen in IR ...

(Reine in the Lofoten Archipelago, Norway: 8 frames with the 28 mm f/3.5 Nikkor K on a D200)

One of my first projects with the then new-fangled and exciting Nikon D1: Shooting the same subject every month at the same day for 12 months, from the exact same vantage point. I chose a nice free-standing ash tree in my neighbourhood and drove a peg in to the ground to mark the camera position.

The montage was used as a full front-back cover of a magazine plus a poster.

Nikon D1, AFS 28-70 mm f/2.8 Nikkor.

Another favourite location from the Hardanger Fjord of Western Norway. I have captured the scenery with everything from fisheyes to long telephoto lenses. (the 400 mm lens required nearly 100 frames on an FX camera, shorter lenses of course much less).

Here is a potpouri comprising stitched captures in visible, IR, and UV. The visible scene here is captured with Nikon D3S and the AFS 200/2, 24 frames), in IR ( D200 with 105 mm f/2.5 Nikkor, about 20 frames), and in UV (Panasonic GH-2, Coastal Optics 60 mm f/4, approx. 30 frames). NB: they are not not taken concurrently; this is a spot I have visited many times.

The mountains on the other side of the Fjord are outposts of the Folgefonna Glacier.

The visible scene is of course pure postcard and hangs in several Norwegian Embassies in a mural format.

A popular building indeed. I always wondered how you avoided drowning your camera that morning :D

These classic views of Tromsø are stitched from 7 photos. The first one is shot at midnight, but I also wanted the early morning light, so I spent the night in a tent on the mountain, and took the other one at 6 a.m.

After seeing these I had to dig up my D1H and AI-S 35/2 and try some myself. This is a dam of a small local hydropower plant, and the dam is under repair. It is there not so much for the energy but as a means to prevent flooding downstream at springtime. Nine vertical shots.
