242/365 Photo Project - Mont Royal Panoramic

Mont Royal Panoramic

Sticking with the panaromic theme, and how could I not with all the options given in the great city of Montreal? With the humidity finally leaving the city it was just the excuse I needed to convince the wife to come with me on a hike up to the top of Mont Royal.

Little did I know that it was as many steps as it turned out to be, compounded more so by the walk we made from our Old Montreal hotel through the downtown area and passed the riot police rounding up McGill University protesters, I kid you not! We would also later find out that Lance Armstrong was in town and had an entourage following him up the mountain, thankfully we missed that media farce and managed to make it back down to our hotel without having a heart attack or some other medical condition ;)

Here 6 separate shots taken with the Canon PowerShot SX230HS are combined in to a panoramic in post processing. The view of downtown Montreal is taken from the Kondiaronk Belvedere and the Chalet du Mont Royal (according to the Wikipedia article link above).
