Back in July of 2007, I wrote a post about Mt. Evans, Colorado and included this image of an Elk herd we saw there: At that time, I was using a Nikon D80 camera and made this photo with an entry level 70-300 telephoto lens. I remember wanting to capture as much detail as possible, so instead … Continue reading Reprocessing a Mt. Evans Elk Herd panorama
I was up on Mount Evans near Denver, Colorado with an Olympus E-PL5 camera and a 24-100mm equivalent lens. This is a 16MP camera and the mountains and valley were just too large to fit through that lens and onto that sensor. I really wanted to capture something that would give viewers a sense of the scene. So how did I make the 46MP (9608×4804) wide angle panorama below with the gear I had?
I like the view at this place on the back portion of Black Point Wildlife Drive in Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. I’ve photographed it several times, but this image is my favorite from that spot so far. Pond, grass, tree-line, and clouds The small pools of water aren’t always there next to the road, … Continue reading Don’t miss a good one
The master copy of the image below is made from multiple frames that I stitched together into a panorama. It ended up being ~196 megapixels. I used a 70mm lens, so the equivalent focal length is about 35mm. Looking at it another way, the tree line along the horizon is probably a couple of miles … Continue reading A Difference in Scale
As I was starting home from Merritt Island National Wildlife refuge yesterday morning, I decided to make one last stop along the causeway. Looking around, I noticed something in the distance rolling around in the water. I couldn’t tell what it was and I wasn’t carrying the long lens, so I walked over to the … Continue reading What is that?
I meant to get out and make some new photos last week, but that didn’t happen. For today’s post I’ll just show you three recent images that I like and that haven’t been in the blog. I hope you like them too. These first two were made on the same trip as the ones in … Continue reading Just Three Photos

Here are a few photos from a short trip over to Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge last week. I spent most of my time on Black Point Wildlife Drive. This first one is a six frame, handheld, infrared, black & white panorama looking along the road near the entrance just after dawn. What’s around the … Continue reading Black Point Wildlife Drive – 7/16/20
I wish I knew how to predict what sunrise will be like. But I don’t, so I just show up and see how it’ll turn out. Here’s the first photo I made last Wednesday: The water is wide And this next photo is from nearly an hour later. The color and clouds were going strong … Continue reading MINWR – 17 June 2020

Companies are coming out with new versions and even completely new programs to compete with the Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom standards. And Adobe is fighting back with new updates to keep their customers happy. Bubble Pond, Acadia National Park … Continue reading Keeping up
