Panoramas

Here is a section of digitally ‘stitched’ photos, which create panoramic views.

I really enjoy this technique! It’s the same as overlapping printed shots to create a poster.

The program is called “Double Take,” and I highly recommend it.

The community’s ski trails double as walking trails in the summer.

AND NOW, the VERTICAL PANORAMAS:

  1. I love these shots of inuvik in the autumn- its so beautiful- and the green house looks magical!

  2. Thanks very much! I really enjoy these also…

    and yes, the Greenhouse is always a great place to visit

  3. These are super-crazy man, well done!
    I like the wide shot of the town, a lot of trees!

  4. Wow–those are awesome pictures! Very very cool…

  5. Thanks Carla,

    It takes no special skill, I use a program called “doubletake” which does all the work. All you need to do is hold the camera steady, turn, click, turn, click, etc.

  6. From the ground to the sky, that shot is amazing.

  7. Super photos Phil!! Merci pour le tip du logiciel! (En passant, l’école c’est SHSS, pas SAMS 🙂

  8. Hello, pretty good look around town, it is all new to me, I am Southren Ontario.
    The community green house is in the back ground of the shot of main steet?

  9. Inuvik! Those pictures all tell the tale of my four summers up there! It was like a trip down memory lane! Gotta love Inuvik!

    I lived in Inuvik from 1962-1968 . The population at that time was around 1500. It doesn’t look as tho much has changed since then. The “row” houses were not the brightly painted ones that you show here,but more pastel shades. I loved living there, and when I see these pictures it brings back a lot of memories. It was a wonderful place to live, and I would not have missed it for anything.

  12. ,.. Wonderful Pics, Philippe!,..

  13. Dear Phil: Thank you for posting these photos of my home town. It is hauntingly familiar and yet stunningly strange to see the changes wrought through the years. We lived there from 1959 – 1973. I was very touched to see Agnes Semmler’s grave marker in one of your photos. We knew her well. Thank you again for the memories.

    • Hi! My name is Erik Norberg. My grandfather Oskar Norberg was brother with Petter Norberg, father of Agnes Semmler. I wonder if there are any relatives from Agnes that would like to have contact with some of their relatives in Sweden? Please let me know if that´s the case.
      Best regards
      Erik

      • Lenora DeBastien

        Hi, I don’t know if you would get this but I am Agnes’ Great-Great Grand Daughter.

        Hope to hear from you!

      • Erik Norberg

        Hi Lenora! Great to heare from you!:) If you want to contact me please use my e-mail adress gievrie@gmail.com. I don´t have facebook but maybe I have to fix it now:).
        Best regards

  14. Just a quick note: the school in the photos is Sam Hearne, not Sir Alex.

  16. Thanks for the nice comments everyone!

  17. I spent nine years in Inuvik, leaving sometime around 1976. (Not exactly sure of the year; I was only 11 years old!) Thanks for the pictures, they provoked a lot of memories. Minor quibble: your photo of Samuel Hearne high school is mislabelled as Sir Alexander Mackenzie School.

  18. I lived in Inuvik from 79-85,went to Samuel Hearne and Graduated from there..Have enjoyed ,looking back on the Pictures..

    Thank you,
    Kimberly

  19. Mr. Morin, I really enjoy your site. I connected a lap top to my fairly large TV and your panorama of the town looked really nice. There is an open source program for PCs that can stitch photos for panoramas and such called hugin (http://hugin.sourceforge.net/). Again great site!
