Grand View Point at Canyonlands, 2007

A 180° panorama looking south from the Grand View Point Overlook inside Canyonlands National Park in Utah.  This is from our 2007 trip to nearby Moab.  To give a sense of scale, there is a single-lane dirt road that runs across the foreground, then curves up to the right.

Crater Lake panorama (my first)

My very first panorama, taken summer of 1990 at Crater Lake in Oregon.  I snapped this with a disposable 35mm camera, from the main overlook at the Rim Village.  I didn't get my first real 35mm SLR until a couple of years later, and my first digital wasn't until a few years after that.  But I had the 35mm negatives from the disposable, and scanned them a few years ago.  I've just now got around to stitching them into a panorama, and uploading it.

Fall color in the San Juan mountains of Colorado

We hit the peak of fall color on our drive through southwest Colorado's San Juan mountains.  These pics are from Oct 4, on the drive from Durango to Ouray, with most of the pictures between Silverton and Ouray.  The challenge was not finding a good picture, rather choosing from lots of good pictures to find a great picture — no matter where you looked there was tons of color.  The other difficulty was the lighting, due to mostly cloudy conditions, so I had to work hard on the exposure.  I highly recommend this drive in Colorado, and wish we had more time.  Maybe next fall we'll take a trip just for the color, and stay overnight in the town of Ouray.
