Canadian Rockies Panoramas

On this trip, I took a number of panoramic photographs. Click the "(L)" link for the truly huge, scrollable version of each panorama.

The panoramas were stitched (from as many as 20 images, or 1/8 of a gigapixel!) using Hugin. This is a great—and free—program that runs on Windows and Mac in addition to Linux; I can't recommend it enough. When the images are decently aligned, it is a very fast (and not at all fiddly) process to produce a very decent panorama.

Montréal Botanical Garden

On our last day in Montréal the weather finally cleared—it had been raining for two days straight—so Ingrid and I headed to the Jardin Botanique (Botanical Garden). Unfortunately, we only had a few hours to spend at the gardens and so we only saw about a quarter of it. In that time I still managed to get a bunch of nice photos.

Photos from my recent trip to Canada

Here are some photographs from my recent trip to British Columbia, along with Ingrid and her folks. We first went to Victoria, visiting several nearby beaches and the Buchant gardens. Later we went to Whistler, a ski village north of Vancouver. I took only a few photos there. Finally, we spent the last day and a half in Vancouver itself, but I didn't take any pictures. Ingrid has more photos from Whistler and Vancouver, perhaps she'll put them online someday.

Canada dinner experience, links to photos

After being seated, Camilla showed up with our menus. Roger asked about the vegetarian meal he had been promised on the phone, and she said "who told you that?" and "that's not correct!"
