Over the years, I’ve taken several panorama sequences where I’ve taken multiple photos side by side with the intention of stitching them together. I finally got around to using the Photomerge tool in photoshop and making it happen. It’s been great to relive these memories as part of the process. Click any photo to expand.
This particular panorama was taken at 17,575 ft on a peak called Gokyo Ri in the central Khumbu/ Sagarmatha National Park in Nepal. My good friend and climbing partner Dave is surrounded by giants including (from L-R) Cho Oyu, Pumori, Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Makalu and Cholatse. This panorama consists of 9 photos. A few days after this photo was taken, we crossed a pass near the center of the photo to head over towards Mount Everest.
Prayer flags blow on the rooftops of the town of Manang (11,545 ft), on the north side of the Annapurna Range. Annapurna III (24,786 ft)) is on the left and Gangapurna (24,457 ft) is on the right.
View from near the village of Upper Pisang, Nepal. Annapurna II, Annapurna IV and Annapurna III can be seen from the center of the photo L-R. Three years later, and a road is currently being constructed up the prominent valley to the left where I had hiked in.
View from the Kepler Track, high in Fiordlands National Park, New Zealand on an incredibly rainy day. A record was set in the nearby town of Te Anau for the most rainfall ever recorded in 24 hours while Jen and I were crossing the Kepler Track. There were lots of water falls, and almost no one else around.
View of the highlands of Fiordlands National Park, New Zealand. This was where Jen and I had our first encounter with Kea, the only species of alpine parrot and New Zealands resident prankster, known for eating weather sealant on cars and finding their way into many a tourist’s lunch.
