Nope, I don't have one of those fancy cameras that takes panormic photos. As it turns out, I don't need one! For this panoramic view, I used the "mending horizons" technique featured on page 53 of Tami Potter's "Designing Photo Mosaics and More" book.
To do this, you align your photos side by side, syncing them up at a common horizon line. Then, you cut your desired height (2 1/8, 3 2/8, etc.) with the photos aligned at that position.
I also used some pre-printed Niagara Falls paper for the photo mats and accent pieces.
