Autumn in the National Parks – In Panorama

Deremer Studios Fine Art Photography

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.

Autumn in the National Parks – Bryce Canyon

Deremer Studios Fine Art Photography - Out West

After our whirlwind tour of the Grand Tetons, we continued south to Salt Lake City, where we had a wonderful dinner with some old friends, before heading a few hours further down the road to Fillmore, UT.  On our 7th morning, we headed down to Bryce Canyon – about a two hour drive from our motel.  The morning started off quite overcast and threatened to rain, but as providence would have it, the weather held and the dappled clouds provided some great diffused lighting for shooting the unique landscape of the Canyon.  On our way in and out, we also passed though Red Rock Canyon (above), aptly named for the red sandstone cliffs lining the drive to Bryce.  There’s even a couple of tunnels hewed through the outcroppings – something I remember from my first trip out west as a teenager back in ’95.

After enjoying some time with the top down as we drove through Red Rock Canyon, we arrived at the entrance to Bryce, took a look at the map, and headed out to the canyon.  Unfortunately, I apparently don’t know how to read a map, and after about 30 minutes of driving behind an unbearably slow procession of motorcycles and caravans, we realized that the main canyon was actually one of the first turnoffs, 15 miles back down the road…  Thankfully, there are some beautiful areas all along the route, so we weren’t in want of scenery, but after about an hour or so of exploring, we found our way back to the quintessential Bryce Canyon and began to explore.   With only about an hour and a half until we needed to begin driving to the Grand Canyon, we didn’t have quite as much time as we would have liked, but the time we did have was pretty awesome.  From a pot-bellied begging chipmunk, to a hike down the steep and winding Navajo Trail (I would highly recommend it), it was a ball!
