Bear’s Hump Panorama–Click on image for extra detail!
After a long hiatus, I am finally back. My husband and I have just returned from a giant camping trip exploring a large swath of the western US (and even a little into Canada). In fact, this first post is from the northern extent of our journey, Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta. This is a giant panorama, stitched from ten separate images. It is taken from atop “Bear’s Hump,” a short but strenuous hike to a lower peak in the park. It was shortly before sunset when we alighted the top, offering some lovely lighting and an open view perfect for a panorama. Be sure to open the full-size image to view details of the village below and the distant glacier-carved mountains.
Here is a single shot taken from the same perspective, showing a little more detail of the Waterton village below with the mountains disappearing in the distance, into the United States.
In all, I took more than 8000 images from this trip, which made this more of a “work-cation” than a vacation. My husband proved to be an invaluable assistant, loyally lugging around my tripod and helping secure many wonderful perspectives for me to set my camera’s view. Much of the credit for the images lies with him. Needless to say, there will be many more pictures coming.
