The View from Grandfather Mountain





(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

I started experimenting with panoramas back in 2011.  Although smartphones and tablets have a pano mode, I make my panoramas by stitching together individual images using Photoshop.  I’m never quite sure how a particular experiment is going to turn out, but I will admit I like the image above.  It was made on Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina in November, 2012.  I like the way the mountains slowly retreat toward the horizon and start to fade away.

Fantastic work with panorama! I too used to make panorama by sticking photos, but my smartphone has that option (panoramic) and I haven’t used still.
