Tech tied turkey day

Happy Thanksgiving to all my webfriends. I hope we all shared a sense of history in the origins of turkey day. I hope we all found friends and family to love and fellowship with this fine day. Technical speedbumps are preventing my posts... Sorry and see you in few days.

a photostitch in time

70mm f5.6 1/640s ISO:100
This is mt first effort at making a panoramic photograph.  I used Canon's PhotoStitch tool to do it.  It was straight forward and very easy- take a shot at it.  Everybody know what photo stitching is?  I took 7 shots of this valley from the Blue Ridge Parkway.  Each shots was a section of this one.  I visually found a marker at the edge of the first frame and compose that mark just inside the left edge of my next photo.  The right edge of frame two became the left edge of frame three... and so on.  The software tool aligns the images and stitches them together.  In this case it smartly found the horizon and hills to match up.  Pretty cool little trick.
