Mountain panoramas pt. I

365/366 I absolutely love using a panoramic camera in the mountains and I made sure to bring my X-Pan with me when travelling to Wengen in the Summer. The extra-wide frame has such a cinematic look and somehow makes the mountains look even more impressive than when viewed in a standard photographic frame.
While I wanted to mix and match square images with panoramas, it turned out to be too difficult to juggle both film cameras at once. This is partly due to physically attempting to switch between the cameras, but the difficulty in seeing two completely different frames at once is more significant than I gave credit to. So I took it in turns to use both cameras, finishing a film in one before moving on to the other, and simply enjoyed the hike.
