Portmeirion, Wales - an amazing village - panoramic picture using Olympus Pen images

Here is a panoramic shot of Portmeirion, North Wales, I took using the Olympus Pen. With four pictures stitched together, it became a massive picture (more than 50mb) of an amazing village.

Click on the image to get a better view (more Snowdonia pictures coming soon to my website)

Stitching a few images together is a great way, if you are careful, of increasing the megapixel count of your camera. If I had taken the pictures with my Canon 7D, I could have plastered the walls with this image.

From Wikipedia: "Portmeirion is a popular tourist village in Gwynedd, North Wales. It was designed and built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975 in the style of an Italian village and is now owned by a charitable trust. Portmeirion has served as the location for numerous films and television shows, most famously serving as The Village in the 1960s television show The Prisoner, starring Patrick McGoohan."
