I shot a very large horizontal + vertical panorama set consisting of 52 exposures. When I tried to put it together I couldn’t get it to look right. So I experimented and came up with this – a Montana snow globe (without the snow). The full version is about 100 megapixels.
I did a bit of hiking and exploring around west Texas this past weekend. Just after sunrise I was at Copper Breaks State Park and saw these interesting looking red rocks being lit by the morning sun. I had very little room to walk around near the rocks and had to shoot a mosaic (two rows of five exposures) to get the amount of rocks and sky that I wanted. Normally I would do cropping and tweaking after stitching the exposures together to produce a traditional rectangular image, but I liked the way this image looked in “raw” state and decided to leave it as is…
Wordless Wednesday. It’s a blogging thing. The poster is saying “here is an image that speaks for itself.” Or, in this case, the poster is saying “I have been staring at this image for 10 minutes, I can’t come up with an interesting title, but I can use the Wordless Wednesday thing to get away with it!” Just an interesting looking hill near Libby Dam in the great state of Montana. Mosaic image composed from 10 exposures (2 rows of 5 exposures).
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.
