March 2, 2012 : Utah (black and white, Monuments, Nature, Zion)
It’s not easy to capture the sheer scale of the geological goings-on in Zion National Park in a single pic. I tried fisheyes, stitching half a dozen shots into a panorama, then 40 odd shots into a panorama on me iTouch, zooming while shooting and trying to include teeny tiny humans somewhere in the image but I think the only answer is to start saving up for yet another lens… 18mm or thereabouts. Anyroad, hope you like this pic aimed down the valley from a relatively safe vantage point, unlike the ones where I feared for life, limb and camera on the icy stretch 20 feet from the top…
(lots more Zion pics here)
Wow! Amazing shot, Gwyn!
Who left that bottle opener there? (private joke).
I think you did very well capturing the scale. Can I see the 40 photos stitched together?
Bert, they’re stuck in a little iOS app called 360 Panorama, to be honest taking the pics is more fun than viewing them online. You wave it round and it stitches everything on the fly making shutter noises as it goes. If my itouch had a proper iphone camera it’d be a lot more satisfying, as it is, it’s pretty lowres.
That’s a very clever idea. If I get a new iPhone I’ll download it.
Many thanks in advance for your feedback(and should you fancy a pic to show with your text, click for a gravatar!)
