Rajan,

I'm still recovering from the shock of seeing real buildings like the Church in your last picture lit like Sharir's lithographs!

This rock scene is awesome. Thanks again for bringing us such dramatic landscape. Did you happen to consider getting the adjacent scene to the left and right to make an impressive panorama?

Where are the birds?

Your guide, BTW, from the pictures in your blog, has nerves of steel, DNA of a gazelle or is nuts!

Asher

Asher,

This was taken in late October; the birds are gone by early September.

I did not make an panoramas. But I have recently procured the RRS pano package and look forward to doing some panos.

Rajan,


Even on a shoot like this, as everything is so far away, you can do brilliantly by rotating the camera about the entrance pupil of the lens. Autopano Giga or PTGui will still give you a prefect stitch most of the time. Just overlap generously by about 30% and you will be awe-stricken by how good you are!

Very nice capture. I like the composition (the curve that the cliff designs across the frame) and the opposition of colors.
