Creating composite images is a favorite process of mine. It’s time consuming and I have only worked on a small fraction of the images I’ve captured, but seeing a panorama come together from several images is an inspirational joy. Usually editing is required to even out lines in the landscape, but when it works, it works beautifully.
Below are some composites from my time in Arizona. I’ve been mining my cache for possible prints and NFTs to offer for purchase. Are there any you can see on your wall?

2014 Photo Challenge, Week 13 Submission: Landscape, Vanishing Road/Walkway I took this as an opportunity to play more with ICE. This is a stitched panorama of Harlem Meer, a pond in Central Park and its surrounding walkway. Sony A33, f/4.5, 1/40 sec, ISO 100

2014 Photo Challenge, Week 24 Submission: Keeping it simple on the minimalism… i.e. giving up for the day.

2014 Photo Challenge, Week 36 Submission – Landscape: Horizon I had to take a walk for this one, but what a great reward for the effort. Didn’t want to miss a week. Taken from the Brooklyn Bridge. Sony A33, 40mm, f5.6, ISO 1600, 1/5 sec.
When this week’s challenge was posted, I was excited to see it was a landscape one since Las Vegas, NV was on the schedule for the week. The beauteous mountains are stunning me more and more with each good shot I manage!
Shots by the end of Day 1
Howard Beach subway stop, aka, JFK Airport, NYC
The view from my hotel room. **sigh**
My hotel room has a view of the incoming and outgoing planes. This one looked especially large but still just a speck in the great big sky.
Amazed anew by how the vastness of the sky makes mountains look like molehills.
Driving to Red Rock Canyon
Taking in my surroundings in Red Rock
The blue-black took my breath away.
On my drive back to town, I pulled over to take pictures of the distant Vegas lights. This is what I saw with my eyes, minus the range in the background.
Eventually, I remembered I had my telephoto lens on. What a difference zoom makes!
My eyes eventually saw this beam of light through the lens.
