Sydney Harbour Panorama

Sydney Harbor Panorama high res at night (cityscape). I took this panorama photo of the Sydney harbor at night from the north side of the harbor next to Jeffrey St. Wharf. This is one of my favorite views of Sydney Harbour since you can see the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Circular Quay, and the high-rise skyscrapers of the Sydney CBD (Central Business District). This (Kirribilli) is the perfect place for a panorama view of Sydney Harbor.

This is an HDR panorama from 2 angles (each 3 exposures, so 6 photos total). I merged each photo into an HDR using Photomatix and then combined the 2 resulting images as a panorama in Photoshop.

You can buy this photo here, with many options including standard prints, canvas gallery wraps, gift cards, mugs, T-shirts and much more.

Sydney Circular Quay CBD Panorama

Standing next to the Sydney Opera House looking back towards Circular Quay and the CBD (Central Business District). The after-sunset glow in the sky was amazing this evening.

Sydney Harbour on Blue - Sydney Opera House & CBD

Soon after sunset is my favorite time to gaze out at Sydney Harbour with the Opera House and CBD (Central Business District) skyscrapers. I took this photo while we finished up our dinner down by the water this evening. I like how the sky & water match in color.

Gospel Rock Panorama - Gibsons Landing, Sunshine Coast, BC, Canada

Gospel Rock Panorama - Gibsons Landing, Sunshine Coast, BC, Canada

This epic view from Gospel Rock was the highlight of my visit to Gibsons Landing on BC's sunshine coast. A local told us the name comes from the days of pirate ships, which found shelter in this harbor. The local pastor would preach the gospel from this rock before blessing the pirate ships as they headed out to sea. I'm not sure if this is true, but it makes a good story.

As a side note, if you're ever at the seaside village of Gibsons Landing and want to find Gospel Rock, don't follow the trail marked on the map as going to Gospel Rock. That's a false gospel that will lead you down the wrong path. We got lost following this trail. Follow the main road towards the west instead and you'll see the rock outcropping on the coastal side of the road at a turn in the road. Oh, and don't keep calling it Preacher's Rock like I did.

Technical photo details: The full-size image is about 40 megapixels (8,174 x 4,815 pixels), combined from 4 photos, each processed from 3 exposures as an HDR in Photomatix before merging into this panorama in Photoshop CS4. Then some dodging & burning, curves, and other minor adjustments were made.

You can buy this photo here, with many options including standard prints, canvas gallery wraps, gift cards, mugs, T-shirts and much more.

My previous I Can Fly photo was also taken here at Gospel Rock.

This continues my series of desert wildflowers, showing a panorama of the painted hillsides in Antelope Valley, CA. Notice all the sections of different colored flowers. This panorama was put together from 4 HDR photos (3 exposures each).

Mont Blanc Panorama: Grandes Jorasses and Dent du Geant

Mont Blanc Panorama: Grandes Jorasses and Dent du Geant

I took this panorama on Mont Blanc in the French Alps. There is an impressive cable car that takes you from the town of Chamonix Mont Blanc to Aiguille du Midi (12,602 feet or 3,842 meters), a peak partway up the mountain. The cable car holds the world record for most elevation gained: around 9,200 feet of elevation gain in the 20 minute ride to the top. This photo only shows a tiny fraction of the Alps (French, Italian, and Swiss) that can be seen from the top of the tram. Specifically, the peak on the left is Grandes Jorasses, and the one on the very right is Dent du Geant. Both these peaks lie on the French-Italian border.

Joshua Tree Panorama at Sunset

This is probably the best sunset I've experienced in Joshua Tree National Park. Friends and I were already heading down from Ryan Mountain when this brilliance opened up. I ran back up to the top to capture this panorama. After about 10 minutes, the color was gone.

Kangchendzonga

Kangchendzonga is the third tallest mountain in the world, visible from Darjeeling, India. I also posted an interactive high-res version of this panorama just like I did for the Taj Mahal: Kangchendzonga High Resolution Panorama

Mahawu Crater

Mahawu Crater

Living in the Pacific Ring of Fire means living close to quite a few volcanoes, such as Mahawu. This is a favorite hiking destination for my parents since it can easily be done in an afternoon from where they live. As I took this photo from the rim of the crater, I could hear the bubbling of the hot center below. It's a steep climb from here down to the bottom, but definitely worth the effort.

Cross-Country Skiing Panorama in Canmore

Andy took Katie, Joe, and I cross-country skiing when we visited him in Canada around the time of his graduation. It was a beautiful day in the Canadian Rockies, and though I fell a lot, I really enjoyed skiing. This is where we ate lunch.

Aiwasa Fat Panorama Part 2

As is probably obvious, this panorama was taken in the same place as the last post to the photoblog. In fact, this was part of the same panorama, which I split into two photos for easier viewing; this is looking back the other direction. It turns out that the local wildlife like this area as well, because this is where Katie spotted a wild boar (which our guides chased with their bows & arrows, but which got away), Andy saw a crocodile (close to the nearby stream), and I saw a large deer sleeping area (there may be a more technical name for such a place, but I don’t know it). It was also the place we were told to watch out for two very rare poisonous snakes (one white, one black-and-white-striped), but we didn’t get to see any.

Aiwasa Fat Lake Hiking

This was one of the most incredible areas on our trek: we hiked for a couple hours through what used to be part of Aiwasa Fat Lake, but is now a beautiful dry lakebed with limestone "islands" jutting up all over the place. If you look closely in the right of the photo you’ll see Benjamin, our main guide and friend on the trip. I had a lot of running to do to catch up after taking this panorama.
