Chester Lake XI (equirectangular)

It was getting late, and we had to leave to avoid the bears. The weather wasn’t terribly good, but that was a bonus in that it kept the crowds away — the only other hikers we met were a nice Japanese couple on their honeymoon.


This High Dynamic Range panorama was stitched from 36 bracketed photographs with PTGUI Pro, tone-mapped with Photomatix, and touched up in Aperture.
