Yellowstone & Grand Teton, October 20th & 21st, 2006

Canon 20D with 70-200/4.0L at 81mm, set in manual exposure mode at f/8.0, ISO 400, and 1/320th of a second. Mounted on a cheep tripod that did little more than aid in keeping a straight line for the panorama. 8 images merged in PS CS5 then converted to B&W.

This was one of those great, early, trips to YNP and GTNP for me, and one that got me hooked on the area. I only had a 20D and 70-200/4.0L (and maybe a 1.4TC by this point). I had been shooting digital for about a year, and was shooting mostly JPG files, unfortunately; but fortunately I was shooting my better landscapes in RAW. I shot quite a few panoramic images on this quick two day trip, and the image featured about (now re-edited and much better), is one of my better selling fine art prints, and an award winner. As you can tell from the images day two brought with it a beautiful snow storm.


p.s. Until this point only five of these images have seen the light of day.
