How about this for atmosphere!

Hopetoun House is one of the most splendid examples of Georgian architecture in Britain.

The work of Scottish architects Sir William Bruce and William Adam who were responsible for the construction between 1699-1707 and 1721-1767 respectively, although sadly Robert Adam died before his masterpiece was finished.

Situated near Edinburgh, Scotland, and set in 150 acres of rolling parkland, the spectacular exterior is counterposed by magnificent interiors with fine paintings, original furnishings and objects d’art.

The present 10th Earl of Hopetoun was responsible with his father in 1974 for the formation of the Hopetoun House Preservation Trust, which ensures the House and Grounds are maintained, and open to the public.

Nikon 8400 with FC-E9 Lens. Home-made camera cradle / rig, triggered by a gentLED intervalometer. Suspended below a mini-KAPilot kite approximately 16ft^2 area.

This technique produces two hemispheres, and a different workflow in PTGui from the classic ground pano technique. This results in lower resolution BUT impossible angles!
