Another experiment in building a mosaic image. Summer afternoon sky near Wolf Creek, Montana. This is a 21 shot mosaic – 3 rows of 7 exposures. This image was resized for posting to the web – the original mosaic is about 10,000 by 6,000 pixels.
This is an experimental shot. I wanted to build a very wide and tall image of the Yellowstone River Canyon so I did a mosaic of 20 exposures – several panoramas stacked on top of each other. The black rectangle in the upper right is an area where I didn’t have enough exposures to complete that part of the scene. I thought I did, but when you are doing a 20 shot sequence it’s easy to lose track of what you have covered. Anyway here it is – looking down on part of the Yellowstone River Canyon early on a summer morning. Click to see a larger version.

Close-up of a summer sunset.
I decided to try to capture the landscape in the other direction as the light was fading. It was one of those moments where the world seemed to be perfectly still.
Early morning, Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park. Panoramic image created from 7 exposures.
Badlands near Cody, Wyoming. Panoramic image created from 2 exposures.
On the road just west of the Bighorn Mountains in Wyoming. I saw this great view – colorful rock formations, interesting clouds, unusual quality of light – and there was nowhere safe to stop and take a photo. So I slowed down as much as I could, stuck my beloved camera out the window, and snapped a few frames. This is the result.
