[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here's a second trail shot but a bit further along towards the alpine area. The mountain center right is known as "pyramid peak" due to it's shape. We summited this peak on the Sunday and I must tell you, it's more difficult than it looks due to crumbly and loose rock. Ah well the summit experience was quite spectacular.
The entire ridge to the left with the cool smaller rocky summit is home to a vast array of bleached white snags from a fire sometime ago. Being the snag photo junkie that I am, it was quite a photo-fest there (pics of that to come later).
Since this small pano doesn't really do it justice, here's a larger version (1600 pixels 400kb).

We'll look forward to what's coming, Tim. Meanwhile, this is great, especially the large post. I like the sense of depth this image conveys, the diagnoal line of trees adding interest, the peaks brushing the sky, and what seems to be a path in the lower left, also beckoning us in. Interesting perspective and good control of horizon.

Wow. There is a huge difference between the two versions. The large one makes one feel right there on the scene. I suspect that there is a bit of wide angle distortion on the right half. The trees are listing a bit. The top of the dead tree to the left of the tallest tree is mysteriously ajar... actually disconnected. Isn't it funny how it is impossible to see some of these things prior to posting? Niek, however would see it....he sees anything that is amiss... and points it out. I should just send him my photos first for proofing before posting them. I like the rich summer colors.

Evelynn : )

Hi Tim,
I like the contrast between the stunning blue sky and the fresh green colors. The long puny trees are a great reference to the height and the cold temperatures. The path leads the eye nicely into the photo. That large version does do a lot more justice to the beauty of this place. Evelynn is right, I did notice the small mistake in the stitch.

What an amazing scene!! Spectacular!
I'm going to have to get out and start hiking again.

Great panorama work!!!
I have no idea how you do it, but it's really awesome!

There are some snow fields left...patches here and there and it appears as though, since it is August, there may be years when the snow never melts completely eh?

I like the pano vision rated vs the vertical shot. And there is much greenery...which you and the mountains compose and compost well.
