Pa Grand Canyon

The Pa Grand Canyon is one of my favorite places to visit whether it is spring, summer, fall or winter. It takes me back in time and refreshes my memories of the outdoor lessons taught to me by my grand father and father. The above image is actually a composite of 25 individual photos taken at Leonard Harrison Lookout.  The shots were taken from a tripod and 5 shots were taken at each position due to the lighting that day.  The tripod head was rotated to overlap individual views so the panorama could be made.  The composite file is 396MB and the native print size is 20 inches by 60 inches and will print up to 40 inches by 120 inches.  We are going to print and frame one at 20x60.

 I look forward to going back in the fall and winter to repeat the process.

This view of the canyon is missed by many.  It is along the west rim looking north, but one has to leave the vehicle and walk to this look out.  It is my favorite view of the canyon as it shows the meandering Pine Creek and the rail trail as well as the structure of the mountains and leaden valleys.

Until next time

Beautiful shots, Jim. I have not tried stitching a panorama together and this makes me think I should try it.

Fabulous work Jim! I've stitched a few but nothing of this magnitude.
