This picture was taken in Happy Valley in Orkney.
The picture was made by transforming a panorama view of Happy Valley to show how it would look if you lay on your back and had a very wide field of view (300°).

It was the 13th of May 2011 and it was a was lovely day. The Bluebells were in full bloom and the day was warm and sunny. Just as I was taking this picture two friends, Marita and Kim, walked past on their way to have a small informal picnic above a small waterfall farther up the valley. After taking the pictures for the panorama I went up to join them and had a pleasant chat with them for a half hour or so.
