Rock of Cashel Panorama

Panorama of Rock of Cashel, Tipperary, Ireland

Last month I had the luck (of the Irish?) to head over to Dublin for a business trip, and took a few extra days for a short holiday with my wife while there. We grabbed a tour bus for a day trip to a number of sites, including the Rock of Cashel in Tipperary and I snapped a bunch of photos, including this panorama of the landscape behind the chapel and graveyards. This shot was composed of five images, stitched together in Adobe Lightroom and post processed in On1 Photo Suite.

According to legend, the Rock of Cashel originated in the Devil’s Bit, a mountain 20 miles (30 km) north of Cashel when St. Patrick banished Satan from a cave, resulting in the Rock’s landing in Cashel. Cashel is reputed to be the site of the conversion of the King of Munster by St. Patrick in the 5th century. Prior to the Norman invasion of Ireland, this was also the seat of the Munster Kings. [Wikipedia – Rock of Cashel]

Unfortunately, I could not get a tourist out of the shot, my rubber-stamp-fu is not strong (yet), and the guy was less than courteous – planting himself in the shot after I waited 10m to politely ask if he could move to the right for a moment … meh! I was hoping to just have my wife in the image … oh well! I’ve other shots from the trip I am working on as I find downtime and will be posting more as I get them.

On another note, I’ve changed my watermark – the folks over at PhotoLogo created this for me and it is so much better looking than the old Copyright that I used previously – what’cha think?
