Corsica from Monte Rotondo (B+W 1984)

A near 360 degree view from the summit of Monte Rotondo, second highest mountain in Corsica, just before sunset on a July day in 1984. The image was composed of 17 slide scans, merged in Photoshop and tweaked there to create 7 tiles that allow import to ICE. ICE didn't get the rotation because there's no lens information in the files. This is not 52 degrees, but about 350 degrees. Black and white processing done to increase contrast. Will upload a larger color version as well. Camera was a Nikkormat EL with 50mm f1.8 Nikkor, probably on Fuji RD100

I love your stuff Peter. Thnaks for telling us so much about it.

And I never realized Corsica was so mountainous!

Corsica is the Sierra Nevada of Europe - climate almost the same, but geologically much older, so the valleys are deep, the mountains still tall for the climate zone (about Chicago latitidue). Snow in July near the peaks, even a handful of ski lifts.
