Hi John,
Hope to make Maverick's meet-up and meet some of you.
Dave
Great to hear! Did I see a few of these photo's on FM? ;)

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Have a safer backcountry experience by using the HST ReConn Form 2.0, named after Larry Conn, an HST member: http://reconn.org

Hi Maverick,
I do post images at FM Landscape Forum from time-to-time. I may have posted these but I don't recall.

with the recent chatter about panorama stitches in the budget landscape photo thread, I gotta post one of my hack handheld panos here. this is pretty much the type of stuff I shoot stitched images for: overcome insufficient coverage of the lens I have, or capture extreme perspectives to get the view you want to convey. I rarely do those mega 360 degree super-distortion type stitches any longer. Got tired of those. Fun but not really what you see when you are actually there. This image on the other hand is about the scene you'd perceive standing at that lookout point.

4 horizontal frames with an old manual focus 20mm lens on a full frame body, stacked vertically with plenty of overlap.

Bishop Pass August 17. Finally the storm clouds lost their energy and only stuck around for some dramatic lighting

snippet:
...At the shallow north end of the same pond, with almost no breeze, at 8:15am, it was time to switch on my very sharp Sigma 60mm F2.8 lens in order to create the largest image set of the trip. Using the 60mm requires over 4 times the frames and numbers of shots to cover the area of view as with the 30mm I shot most landscapes with above. With more frames it takes more time with the opportunity for failure greater as a single mistake on a single shot can ruin the whole set of shots if say the focus is wrong or the lens atop the tripod is shaking. The set of 183 shots required 20 minutes that I just managed to fit in before the expected up canyon breezes developed. Later back home, that effort proved successful as I loaded an over 2 gigabyte stitched together PSD file out of my Kolor Autopano Pro application into Photoshop CS6. The resulting 18000 by 13500 pixel image has considerably more detail than any older images from 4x5 view camera Provia 100F work and someday expect to view it as a large fine detailed 60 by 45 inch print. With such a large image, I prefer to have more interesting element details in foregrounds so here that is satisfied with the shallow pond water bottom and grass.
