It doesn't look like they've spruced the place up any since I was last there in 1982. Another great panorama Paul! What lens did you use for this and the Twin Peaks shot? Just curious.

Thanks Richard! Lens for the Alcatraz shot would have been my 16-105 zoom on the A700 body. The Twin Peaks pano was different - the Leica 4x zoom on my Lumix FS7 compact did that - an amazing little optic for a 10MP camera that cost 130! Incidentally, following your advice here I stitched these both with Microsoft ICE (free) instead of my usual Serif Panorama Plus 2 (10). They're both pretty similar though I think I prefer the Microsoft item, not least for the Autocrop function and giving a bit more information.

Thanks for the tip!

Paul.

Looks like you're getting around, Paul. I watched  a CE film on Tuesday-'A few Dollars more' with Lee Van Cleef.

I don't think I can use the Microsoft ICE on a Mac.

Very good Paul, I can really imagine what life must have been like for the prisoners there in the past, I keep thinking of Nicholas Cage and Sean Connery in the 'The Rock' when I saw this image.

Which Dirty Harry movie had Alcatraz in it?...I can't recall.
