[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

As far as You know, there aren't active volcanos in Hungary. But a couple million years ago, in the plyocene era the area You see now was like a "fire-line".

I made the panorama from the Southern side of Lake Balaton, from Fonyód town. You can see not less than 4 non-active volcanos (from left to right): Badacsony (mountain top on 438 meters above sea level), Gulács (393 meters), Csobánc (376 meters) and Tóti-hegy (346 meters). They're in the center of the pic or a bit right, the other hills on the panorama are not volcanic. I know the exact names of the mountains are most probably uninteresting to non-Hungarian people, but who knows... maybe You get temper to visit this area personally. As You can see, the hills are not high at all, but they're very steep...

I dedicate this panorama to my great local Friend Andor (gondox), who's without doubt the best Hungarian photographer on TrekNature and a very kind person. You can find more and better landscapes from Lake Balaton in his gallery. He has the luck to live much closer to this beautiful lake, so I'm jealous... :)

Little tech talk: done with my son's R607. Dunno why - probably I didn't bring my cameras to that walk and had to lend my ex-cam back. Stitching with HP Image Zone, simple digital developing with Photoshop + framing. Also check out the large version - although I just see I wasn't careful enough and the sky remained a bit noisy.

Thanx for stopping by, cheers, László

Bonito paisaje en un interesante formato. Lástima que no pueda tener un tamańo mayor para observar mejor los detalles, pero es lo que pasa con los paisajes de gran formato.
Un saludo y gracias por tus amables comentarios Laszlo: Josep Ignasi.

Hello László,
Great stitching work in getting together this impressive panorama taken by your son's point and shoot! The volcanic peaks are clearly seen and the whole view certainly inspires one to visit your country! The weather was ideal to tkae this kind of shot.
Thanks and best regards,

Nice panoramic view.Well done!Alin

Szia Laci!

Nem is tudom hol kezdjem.. először is nagyon köszönöm a dedikálást! Nagyon jól esik hogy gondoltál rám, ráadásul egy ilyen gyönyörű balatoni képpel!

Tetszik a magas nézőpont, talán a déli partról sehonnan nem lehet így rálátni a vízfelületre. Az is tetszik hogy nyugodt a víztükör így tényleg tükörként üzemel :) Az ég pedig nem üres, a felhők is jól jöttek a kép teljességéhez.

Igazi balatoni kép, én bár ott van nyaralónk még nem csináltam hasonló nagy panorámát.. Rögtön felismerni, én valószínűleg még azt is megmondtam volna nagyjából, hogy honnan készült.. :) A kép arányai is jók, és hogy van egy kis előtér is.

Szerintem a géppel nincs gond, tájképeknél nem gond, hogy nem tud kis mélységélességet. A nagy képen pedig látszik, hogy jó a minőség, az illesztések pedig sehol nem látszanak.

Minden szempontból kiváló panoráma, és mivel jól ismerem a helyet mondhatom, hogy én vagy más se csinált volna jobbat! Úgyhogy azzal vitatkoznék hogy a magyarok közt ki a legjobb ;)

Én is sokszor gondoltam már dedikációra de még várom a megfelelő képet, ami passzol ;)
Mint ahogy ezzel a képpel Te beletaláltál, mivel olyan hely ami a második otthonom és egy igazán szép panorámával örökítetted meg!

A kedvenceimbe pedig nem csak a dedikáció miatt kerül, hanem a fent leírtak miatt!

Még egyszer köszönöm!

Baráti Üdv,

Hello Laszlo, superb landscape shot. Great composition.
TFS and regards,

Impressive view in the LP Laszlo, excellent supporting notes too..
Can't remember ever using my sons camera..he's not into it like I am.
I think he uses a disposable camera from time to time ;-}
You're a lucky man to have had this walk, and share the experience with him.
Well done.

Hello Laszlo
wonderful Landscape, he large version is very impressive, i like all the blue color tones of the water, mountains and cloudy sky,

Have a great WE

Hi Laszlo,

an great panoramic picture with good pov and beautiful colours.

Ciao Lazslo,
another fantastic panorama from Hungary, a wonderful visual impression with superb sharpness and marvellous colours.
Best regards

Hello Laszlo,
very nice panoramic shot of this beatiful landscape. I like the inclusion of the lakeside in the foreground to create good depth to the picture. The view over the lake towards the volcanic mountains is very impressive, especially in the large version. Very well done.
Best wishes,

Hello My Friend Laszlo,
beautiful blue sky and it gives such a dramatic effect. The puffy clouds also renders good impact on the composition.
thanks for your lengthy notes and comment for my fungi shot. i really appreciate as i learn a lot from you especially the names, features and its habitat.
thanks for your effort and i shall alway remember it and appreciate it.


Hello Laszlo
bellissimo panorama su questa catena di rilievi vulcanici che caratterizzano il rilievo montuoso posto tra cielo e mare. Ottima la nitidezza e ed i dettagli che si riescono ad apprezzare ancor piů nella Large Version che hai postato in cui molti particolari rendono ancor piů affascinante la composizione come ad esempio le piccole nubi che si stagliano in cielo aggiungendo profonditŕ al paesaggio. Molto interessanti le note.

Hi Laszlo,

The stitching of the pictures is allowing me to see the details and colors of the lake and of the mountains. It is also leading my eyes toward the mountains which is giving depth to the composition. The nice blue sky is giving a light which is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


I like this picture, Laszlo 🙂
