Montreux Panoramas

In this post I present to you three panoramas of Montreux and surroundings, stitched together from 8-10 photos each – created with Hugin. Quite good-looking results, I think, without much work – I just had to correct very few control points, and in one case (in the 1st picture) I didn’t manage to tell Hugin to properly put together the lake horizon (one photo probably was too slanted), so I had to edit it a bit afterwards. Seems that you have to do some cutting manually to get the proper rectangular result, though (since you never can hold the camera in the exact same height without tripod).

You see all photos (assuming the browsers do it right…) first cramped into the post width, then with a scroll bar.

The first panorama from southeast of Montreux, shortly before reaching Villeneuve, in 2732×320 pixels:

Second one from the shore at Clarens (the western suburb of Montreux) – Montreux on the left, the Rhône mouth in the center; 2056×320 pixels:

Number three, unfortunately with the largest vertical differences, so only a rather narrow stripe1: From Glion station, 300m above the lake – you can see Villeneuve and the Rhône mouth well, and the castle of Chillon on the left edge of the lake just made the photo, too; 3332×320 pixels:
