Week 8 – 32 Panorama

GloriaFerrerVineyardsThis is a five shot panorama of Gloria Ferrer Caves and Vineyards in Sonoma County California, from the tasting veranda.  Although they were very close to the recent fires, there was not any evidence of fire damage at this location.  Other wineries were visited and tours were cancelled due to the recent fires, but no visible signs of damage.  It is beautiful country just north of San Francisco.  Thanks for viewing, Gary.

Week 6 – My First Visit to The Beartooth Highway

IMG_1732-wm-sm

I have visited Yellowstone National Park several times, but have not been able to drive the Beartooth Highway either into or out of the park, due to snow closing the roads.  There was a gentleman sitting on the edge overlooking this canyon, which it gives you an idea of how expansive this area is.  A little information follows my blog.  Thanks for stopping by.  Gary

Welcome to the Beartooth Highway – a National Scenic Byways All-American Road.  This 68 mile byway winds its way through southwest Montana and northwest Wyoming and leads into Yellowstone National Park at its Northeast Entrance.  Since opening to automobile travel in 1937 the Beartooth Highway has welcomed visitors from around the world – introducing them to one of the most diverse ecosystems accessible by auto in the United States.

Week 5 – HDR

EM1A1028-HDR-SM

Continuing on from the previous trip, we made a stop at Cumberland Falls State Park. Not only did we enjoy the surrounding area and the falls, we were treated to a rainbow, that was only visible for a few minutes.  The colors and textures that were available in this shot made it one that I thought should be processed in HDR (High Dynamic Range).  Thanks for continuing on the journey with me.  Gary

At a recent visit to the Ringling Museum, I took this image of a woman studying the literature while awaiting her tour of the Ca’ d’Zan.  I found the light very interesting in the Solarium coming in from multiple directions.  Thank you for taking the time to share in my blog. Gary
