The place where one grew up is probably one of the hardest places to take pictures. It is hard to really appreciate the the beauty of a landscape that surrounds you every day and you just consider to be normal. Living somewhere else for a time helps but I'm still having a hard time visualizing the potential for good images which is why there are only a few images here.
I'm usually not a big fan of panoramas but every once in a while it's the way to go. Stitching a few images together means some extra effort in post processing but it is certainly better that carrying a hugely expensive and otherwise pretty useless extreme wide angle lens. And then there is the added benefit of a higher resolution of the resulting image. The most important thing to bear in mind however is not to overdo it. A common rookie mistake that is especially prevalent with smart phone photographers is to try to get like a 180° angle of view which results in a ridiculously long but narrow image that can't be properly viewed on any device. What are you planning on doing with that - print it on a pencil?
I hope you liked this in-betweener - my next update will be an actual article series on my trip to Portugal.
