Early Morning

Another photo from the misty, moisty morning I climbed out of bed . . . .  While the Galaxy S5 takes OK panos, I like the stitching-together process better.  Here is a view of Mount Clef across the grasses of the small valley in Wildwood Park nearby my home.  Today we expect 86F, and tomorrow 91F.  I think I live in hell sometimes, even though it is very pretty!  I am tired of this heat – ongoing heat – and dream of water falling from the sky.

Pano Problems Along the Trail

Along the Trail

Another view of Mono Lake take while hiking back from Parker Lake in the Eastern Sierras.  This is a pano of about 20 images . . . but if you compare the sky in the upper left and upper right corners of the photo, you will notice serious color differentiations.  The dividing line is the pine tree in the center, and then moving left (dark) to right (lighter).

I had my polarizer on the lens, but shifted it during the taking without realizing it.  Problem!  I think I’ll shoot next time without it.  Still, I liked this well enough to post.

A View to the East

Sunday morning we went out for a hike in the local open space.  The coastal ranges are beautiful right now because of the rains, so long missing from our climate, and returning because of El Nino.  Yesterday’s photo was facing west; this is what lay behind me.  A green and misty land, with a deep gorge to the right, a ridge to the left which, should I climb it, will bring me down into another valley.  Spring!

BTW, this is another panorama, taken with 17 images and merged in LR 6.5.  Gotta love the digital darkroom!
