On a bike ride yesterday I found a nest of Great Horned Owls in the cliffs of Matthew's Winter's park. Went back today to take some pictures of them. Quite amazing animals.

Finally there appears to be a way to embed 360 degree panoramas on web pages. I found the method detailed here. The premise of the article is over the top but if this works at least I'll have a platform independent way of embedding panoramas. There are some java based tools out there, but java is a security nightmare and there is a quicktime plugin method but this doesn't work on iPhones and Android. This might work everywhere although you have to apparently host the image on Google Plus which has the weird problem of lowering the resolution automatically. Perhaps it will work fine hosted somewhere else
This Panorama was taken on the tip of White Crack in Canyonlands National Park.

The town of Cargèse has a greek orthodox church as well as a catholic church right next to each other. Apparently the town was settled by greek settlers and has a rather interesting history. I took this picture walking back from the conference I was attending to the town.

A pipe in Cargèse, Corsica, FR. I really liked the color here with a simple complementary pair in the orange and blue.

A gorgeous sunset on the rocky shores of Corsica, France.
I took this picture by perching the camera on some rocks as I did not have a tripod with me on this trip. I did have to crop out a little bit of out-of-focus rocks on the left, but the waves came out nicely dreamy anyway. I have lots of other nice sea pictures from Corsica that I will share in the near future.

Last February I went on a little trip to photograph the Moab area with some old and new friends. I've posted some pictures from a sunset in Arches already as well as Colorado National Monument. Interestingly, both those sets of images were taken when I had not yet met up with the group. Here I will post a set of pictures from after I met up with them, but rather ironically from me on my own again. This morning, I went out on my own as the others had thought that it would only be ugly and cloudy at our planned location - Dead Horse Point. However, I got out at 4 am to look at the sky and actually saw stars and so decided to go anyway and had a glorious morning.
Dead Horse Point Sunrise. Buy a print.
High resolution composite from 9 images. Nikon D600, Nikkor 24-85 mm f/3.5-4.5 at 45 mm, f/22, 0.4s, ISO 100.
This high resolution composite has over 100MP of resolution and will print wall sized with impeccable detail. I aimed it to have the curve in the tree trunk mirror the bend in the river as well as potash road which you can see just below the river.
Thelma and Louise. Buy a print.
Nikon D600, Nikkon 70-200 mm f/4.0 at 70mm, f/5.6, 1/80s, ISO 100.
A detail showing the island in the sky region in Canyonlands National Park. The title is a reference to the fact that the movie had Thelma and Louise drive into the "Grand Canyon" in this spot.
Dead Horse Point Sunrise Panorama. Buy a print. You definitely should see this larger as the blog format is not very wide.
Stitched from 7 images. Nikon D600, Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 at 16 mm, f/16, 1/10s, ISO 100.
Swoop. Buy a print.
Nikon D600, Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 at 16 mm, f/16, 1/6s, ISO 100.
A horizontal framing of the top image on this post.
Cradled. Buy a print.
Nikon D600, Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 at 24 mm, f/16, 1/6s, ISO 100.
There are many nice compositions to be found along the rim as you can see.
Red Dawn. Buy a print. Another image you really should see large.
Stitched from 9 images. Nikon D600, Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 at 16 mm, f/16, 1/20s, ISO 100.
This is a little later in the morning and taken from the very edge point of DHP. The tree on the far right of the image is the same tree as on the first image above. Standing on this tip you feel really exposed as just over the edge is a looooong way down.

This is an image from Emerald Lake that I captured on a hike up to Emerald Lake for sunrise on December 30th of last year. I have posted on this trip before on this blog and I have many images from this that you can already see in my Emerald Lake gallery mixed in with older images. I spent a long time out on the ice this day capturing many images of the ice and reflections on it. I will post more from this extraordinarily beautiful place but for now here is an image created by stitching 9 images from my D600. This image will print wall sized with amazing detail. Click on the image for a larger view.
