Spending some quality time with the cows among the hills of western Montana…
Shot with a Nikon D7000 camera, Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 lens, ISO 100, f/4, 1/60 second exposure.
One of the radio telescopes of the VLA (Very Large Array) near Socorro, New Mexico.
I wanted a view from near the base of the antenna so I had to use a four shot panorama to get everything in. You may see dark streaks against the sky – it was snowing as I was shooting. Normally on a panorama I would do a bit more correcting of the geometry and cropping but I liked the effect of the curved sides of the image that were present after the first stitch-together of the shots. Shots were taken with my Nikon D800 and Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 lens, ISO 100, 24mm, f/6.3, 1/160 second exposure.
Exploring the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in southern Arizona on a spring morning.
This is a 6 shot panorama – I couldn’t get back far enough to get the framing I wanted without standing on another big cactus. It was shot with my regular landscape rig – Nikon D800, Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. The frames were shot in vertical format, ISO 100, 24mm, f/9.0, 1/320. No filters were used.

Exploring the dunes near Sand Mountain, Nevada, just after sunrise.
Experimental image. Found this wind farm near the border of Utah and Nevada. A panorama set was required to capture all off the wind turbines, but it was a windy day and they were all spinning rapidly. Shot the panorama set as quickly as possible, using about 60-70% overlap between frames so I could fine-tune where each image in the set was stitched to the next. Click to see a larger version.
