Photo on Frommers opening page
Flenfinnan Viaduct, Lochaber, Scotland - it's a very wide vista, really gorgeous, can't have been just one shot, must be a panorama, right?
Dear phellow Phrommers photo phreaks, please tell me if you think I'm on the right track here:
The photographer used a levelled tripod and started to shoot from right to left, in the usual pano manner with overlaps, maybe three or four frames, then he aimed at the left-most segment and waited until the train entered the frame.
Is that it, or can you think of another way of getting this picture to come out the way it did? Could it be a crop of something bigger? But with the moving train...?
Might take a lot of clicks to bring this picture up on the opening web page - each time you click on the opening pic a random algorithm brings up another pic, and Murphy says that the one you want won't come for a long time... I'll go see if I can snag a quick screen grab of it to post here.
OK, I'm back - snagged it, here it is (click it to enlarge):
