  1. Sweet! Those are really stunning. Are you using software or by hand? I do mine by hand because I enjoy it, but you can see the joins if you look hard enough. Where is this place? It's like Golden Valley in D.V.

  2. There's a lat long in the blog; it's about 10 miles or less from the "Castle" of our Coyote Mountains trip. The photoshop 'photomerge' plug in has been impressing me. I put these together in stages and trimmed to make it all uniform. As I recall, the panos took about two hours to get through. Because the exposure towards the sun was quite different, I used different values for Topaz Adjust, another plug in which brought the drama I saw into the images. It's really not a bad output for handheld panos at the end of a brutal hike.

    Yes, that mudstone of the Imerial formation is quite similar to the the D.V. stuff, though I don't know if it has the same source. Here, it was something to do with...well:
