Now that I've finally upgraded my home PC from a dual Pentium III to a new I7 system with 9GB of RAM, I can finally stitch together a lot of my images in a reasonable amount of time. I'm also slowly putting them in a gallery on Smugmug for better viewing and purchase. The link to that site is here.
This particular panoramic is of the famous Ponte Vecchio bridge in Florence, Italy from a trip in 2003. It's seven stitched images in one row from my Nikon D100.

Normally, I think a hiker traveling downhill is suppose to have the right of way, but I don't think this bison knows this rule. This is from the mud volcano area of Yellowstone National Park.

Here are a few images of the same fallen tree as it is slowly covered by water from the thermal features at the Fountain Paint Pots area in Yellowstone National Park. The individual pictures are from 2000, 2002, and 2008. Until this year, I hadn't realized I had been taking pictures of the same bleached out trees all of the time. It reminds me a lot of driftwood.

I was experimenting with black and white HDR photography and decided to try an infrared filter as well. This is of Montezuma's Castle National Monument in Arizona. The image looks a little muddy in the small size but looks better larger. Except for darkening the sky, I'm not sure how much the filter helped, but it was fun to try.

My one and only time seeing a moose calf in Yellowstone National Park. I'm going in the fall this year and hopefully I'll see more that time of the year. This pair was in the canyon area near and stayed fairly near one of the roads leading to the canyon view points.

I've been thinking about a trip back to Yosemite National Park. I always think of that first view right after passing through a tunnel and getting that first glimpse into the valley. This image is from ten years ago with my last film camera, my Nikon N90s. I had driven from San Francisco to where I was staying south of the park. I decided to go into the park late in the day and still made it to the tunnel view overlook before it got too late.
