After 10 days of travel, 3,000 miles, 4,200 photos and over a month of editing, we’ve finally arrived at our last post from our Autumn in the National Parks Collection. Over the course of our trip, we also photographed 142 ultra-high resolution panoramas – most in excess of 100 megapixels. The national parks, with their wide open vistas and expansive views lend themselves perfectly to the medium of panorama – offering a unique perspective on the parks that better represents the true scale of the subject in a way that even the best conventional photos can seldom do. So, without further adieu, here’s about 40 of our favorite Panoramas, offering a sort of summary of an amazing, breathtaking, glorious tour of our nation’s crown jewels!
Here in Florida, without towering mountains, but replete with tall trees, it’s hard to get a panoramic sense of distance, yet out west the opposite is true, and vistas such as Bryce Canyon (top) and the Grand Tetons (above) lend themselves perfectly to the medium. Below, I tried my hand at some panoramic astrophotography in Arches – that’s the aptly named Ham Rock in the foreground. Over the last decade, stitching software has come a long way. When we first got started, I stitched everything manually in Photoshop. I took forever and the amount of airbrushing required to bring it to a professional level was rather tedious and slow. But today, with the built-in panorama capabilities of Adobe Lightroom, I am able to stitch even wide angle images with ease, all while maintaining their raw characteristics. There’s still some tweaking in Photoshop, but nothing like when we first got started.
