Default Mountain Panoramas

Went to a birthday party at a friends house here in Salt Lake City, he lives on the west side of the valley with a beautiful view of the mountains on the East side of the valley - sun setting in the west created the beautiful glow on the mountains tops...had to grab a shot or two....

Single shot - E-30 14-54...



Now a two shot horizontal....



Now a 7 shot vertical pano....



The whole glow lasted less than 2 minutes....so I had to shoot quick and by the time the last shot was done on the 7 shot pano - it was over!

Click em they get bigger....

Comments always welcomed and encouraged...

Enjoy,

Jim

Wow, those are attention grabbing shots. Nice detail and colors when you open them up to big size. Perfect timing on those captures. I vote for #1. Those Oly colors just jump out at the viewer.

Thanks everyone for the kind words...I enjoyed the evening and was fortunate to be there at the precise time - the whole color burst lasted under 2 minutes, by the time I finished with the 7th shot on the pano it was almost gone....

In photography school way back in the dark ages, one of my favorite instructors once told us, if you see a great sunrise or sunset, you are too late...he stressed you need to be there at least 30 minutes before and watch it develop then capture the best moment and his time line was the best were taken in a color burst lasting under 5 minutes total...I have always remembered that...and this is a case in point...by the time I saw the color developing, I was up with camera in hand and waiting....

These were all hand held and on "P" only thing I locked was focus on the panos....

Different folks like to capture different things - some folks like images of people & street scenes. For me it's landscapes and all about the light. I've often visited a place a few times before I've determined the time of day with the light I want in the scene. Usually that's morning or evening light. Almost never around noon. Seems like you enjoy the same area of photography that I do.
