In a waiting room yesterday, I picked up a Nat Geo magazine about our National Parks. Featured were a few awesome panoramas by Steven Wilkes, who takes many images over a 24-30 hour period, then layers and blends them seamlessly into his final image. The panoramas of Yosemite are stunning. I could not find a good image from Nat Geo, but this illustrates his work.

I'm beginning to enjoy doing panoramic photographs. It's somewhat of a reward for work I did about 20 years ago with film. I don't think I'll take it to the extent that Mr. Wilkes has but I'm enjoying the ones I take.

Yup. All it took was the man to take 1000s of pictures, then work to make them look like that.

What I enjoy about panoramas is that the pano includes the context of the subject that drew my attention. This makes the whole scene rather than just a part and, for me, makes the entire scene more enjoyable. Many times, I see a subject and say to myself - "That should be the (right, left, center or somewhere) of xxx images (of a horizontal or vertical) panorama."

There was another guy who made fantastic images of Yosemite. He was not known for how many pics he made but the amount of time he invested into waiting for the perfect light, making perfect exposures with large and cumbersome view cameras, and meticulous darkroom work to wring out exquisite tonal range in his prints. Ansel Adams was his name.
