California Dreaming…

Exactly a year ago we were on a mini-vacation in LaJolla California. 

Sunny days and beautiful sunsets!  Why did we not do that again this year?

I do enjoy Winter – at least the first month or two, but lately I’ve been more and more sad that Summer is gone.

Maybe next year…

The Bottom of The World

A 360 degree panorama from Badwash Basin, Death Valley.  The lowest point in North America – 282 feet below sea level.  This picture was taken by setting up a perfectly level tripod and taking a series of photos with about 1/3 overlap.  The pictures are then stitched together to form a panorama.  Next you need to carefully crop so that each end perfectly matches – including the horizon.  Then the polar filter is used to make the little planet.

Dante’s View

5,500 Feet up and hard to catch my breath!  Matt doesn’t seem to have any issues perched on the edge – so maybe I should learn to relax!
