We travel frequently to the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland, and have recently created a site based around our photo archive of the area. We mapped dozens of our photos onto a series of mountain panoramas, allowing the viewer to step between hilltops and view both the surrounding landscape and photos taken in visible locations.

The site is an attempt to produce a visual aesthetic that conveys some of the wildness and openness of the place. Something that is a little map-like, but more driven by experience than data. Some photos are personally framed, others more illustrative of the landscape.

In the future we mean to extend the site to other areas, but it takes time to climb the mountains. It is to be an ongoing project.

That it is a really neat presentation.

Very nifty. Feels a bit like Myst! I always thought that would be a great way to present photos.

I really like the presentation, but transitioning from a broad landscape to suddenly being near someone made me feel like I was invading your personal, quiet spaces.

And the sudden faces startled me, so much that I'm really hoping one would have a person facing the camera up-close with big, spooky eyes, mouth open with teeth bared, and hands pulled up beside their face with fingers curled into claws. Then again, I like silly things like that.

I'm looking forward to future images and an expansion of this project.
