The Great Rift Valley in Kenya

This panorama was taken as a set of five transparencies on Kodachrome 64 in May 1970.  Prints were made taking care to match colours and the panorama constructed by 'tearing' the prints to get a fathered edge and carefully pasting the photographs together in the same way as mosaics were made from aerial photographs at the time.  Over the decades, despite being stored in optimum conditions, the colours in the transparencies have faded so instead of getting the golden colour of the dry grass the scene looks cold and blue.  The volcano to the left of the image is Suswa with Longonot right of centre.  The road down the escarpment can be seen at the left of the image.
