Great Horns

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.

Trio. Buy a print. On facebook. On flickr. On Google+.
Nikon D600, Nikkor 70-200 mm f/4 at f/4.0, 1/400s, ISO 100. Fairly tight crop.

Embedded Panoramas.

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.
