The last image from my outing on the salt river. This wasn't the last shot I took, that goes to prickly pear margarita. This is just the last I'll share. This is a vertical pano of eight 9 horizontal images. Let's just say that the cliffs in this photo look like ants compared to how they are viewed in person. Amazing what a wide angle lens can do. My camera was also about three inches above the waters surface here. The reeds across the river are probably around 15-20 feet in height. I guess my point is that this image is MUCH more deceiving than it looks.

The Mobius Arch in the Alabama Hills at sunrise. I sat below the arch on this stormy morning getting pelted with rain and wind praying that the clouds in the east would break up to allow some light onto the sierra and the storm clouds. Luckily enough, right at sunrise, light peered through the clouds and illuminated the scene. Too bad Mt. Whitney was shrouded in clouds, but it still made for a beautiful photo none the less.
First of all, sorry for the lack of posting but Marianne, Charlotte and I were busy preparing and then finally enjoying our trip in New Zealand from which we just returned. About this shot.....
The location is 13km into the Routeburn track from the Divide in Fiordland National Park. The conditions when I started the trek could only be described as wet.......pouring rain, small rivers became streams to splash across along the trail, little visibility, a roaring 174m waterfall (Earland falls) requiring a detour at its base. All of us who arrived at the Lake Mackenzie hut that evening were sodden through despite our waterproof gear. As such, it was hard to get the motivation to sit lakeside at sunset, but the rain had stopped as we arrived so a little hope turned into smiles as this scene evolved over the still green waters of the lake. A moment to savour ! ps. Charlotte and Marianne were down in Milford sound enjoying similarly spectacular conditions!
