San Jacinto, California - Panoramic
This was taken on July 7th, 2011 in San Jacinto State Park. Its from the long switch back trail facing east. As you can see it was very cloudy and cool that day, which made for an enjoyable hike. It was actually raining in the valley below us at that point during the day but we missed it.
Anaheim Hills, California - Panoramic
This was taken on April 30, 2011. So just a few hours ago. It was beautiful out there today. Warm, sunny and quite windy. I really hate the fact that this picture doesn’t do the view justice. Its too beautiful. I actually already put up a similar picture just like this but it was from a gray and foggy morning instead. This is what sunny California is suppose to be like.
Gilman Peak, Chino Hills, California - Panorama
This photo was taken on April 17, 2011. I hiked up to Gilman Peak with my dad Sunday morning and snapped these pics. I then stitched them together with the computer program. The darkness in the center picture is irritating me but maybe I’m just a perfectionist and its really nothing. Its a nice picture though. Lots of flowers on the hill that aren’t there the rest of the year.
California State University Fullerton Parking Structure - Panorama
This was taken on March 21, 2011 after my ISDS class. It had been raining all morning and I thought the sky looked amazing. I ended up snapping the photos with my iTouch so the quality isn’t that great but the panoramic editing program stitched it together with no problem.
Anaheim Hills, California - Panorama
This panoramic was taken on March 3, 2011. This is the back side of my special spot in Anaheim Hills. It was a cloudy morning but I still think the picture turned out nice. I edited it together with my Hugin panoramic photo program.
Huntington Beach, California - Panorama
This photo was taken on March 18, 2011 in Huntington Beach California. It was taken with my old camera and was internally stitched together. I only edited it a little bit. Just changed the saturation a bit. Made it more blue/purple. But its alright. And you can’t really tell where the photos were stitched together which is always a plus.
Joshua Tree National Park, Joshua Tree California - Panorama
This was taken on September 6th 2010 in Joshua Tree National Park. This was during the heat of the day at the campgrounds in the northern part of the park. It was originally two separate photos that I edited together using a panoramic stitching program. Joshua Tree is just an amazing place. I can’t get enough of it. I love the rock formations. Very different from anything else I’ve ever seen. So desolate. Love it. Too bad you can’t see our trailer on the other side of the rocks in the center. You would really be able to tell how high up and far away we scrambled over the rocks.
Panoramic Park, Fullerton California- Panoramic
Took this on March 21 2011. Its from Panoramic Park in what I believe is Fullerton or Brea California. The picture was taken in the morning facing north-west towards Downtown L.A. I edited it with my new panoramic editing program and I believe it turned out very nice. Not a favorite and nothing really special about it but its as I said nice. And now that I look at the picture again I see an editing error in the photo. Makes it totally obvious where the two photos were stitched together. Maybe I’ll go back and fix it later.
Anaheim Hills California - Slow Shutter Speed and Panoramic
This photo was taken on March 4th 2011 at my special spot in Anaheim Hills. I believe it was a slow shutter speed photo. Probably like 4 seconds and then I edited it together with my new panoramic photo editing program. It’s not the clearest shot but it’s nice. I love the city glow and haze. It creates an interesting shot. I’m gonna go crazy when I get that perfectly clear sunny day and I take a billion shots from up here.
Zion National Park, Utah - Slow Shutter Speed
Another Zion photo. And this was another photo taken on January 16, 2011 at night using slow shutter speed. This one took a bit of computer editing to get it just right. I know I had to crop it and brighten it a bit. I like this one because you can actually see the stars and I love the look of the valley walls in the background. There’s a very anachronism feeling about this photo. In my mind the desert valley walls don’t really match the flat, grassy, tree filled valley floor. But it is what it is. And I think the horizon line is a bit off… that is starting to bug me a bit.
