Thanks Greg

I get the opportunity to see some fine country in the winter as I work part time as a snow surveyor. Usually go over Kearsarge a few times a winter.

Got 23 new Deep Zoom panoramas from the Muir Trail added here:

http://didnt.doit.wisc.edu/outdoor/Muir ... allery.htm

Highlights are a 360 degree 275 megapixel Muir Pass panorama at sunrise, as well as the below view of the Palisade Crest from Mather Pass at about 284 megapixels. All about the limit of what you can stitch together successfully with hand-held camera source files. The Palisade pano was 3 rows of 14 images at 135mm focal length, I think.

at full resolution in 28954x8734 pixels, this would print at 96x30 inches

Not a true panorama, but cropped to look like one :)

I took this a few years ago in the Emigrant Wilderness near one of the Emigrant Lakes (I think it was between Middle Emigrant and Emigrant Meadow Lake IIRC).

I can see the shadow of the Muir-Pass hut in this picture: were you on top of it?!?!?! It's hard to see how else you could have got a 360 without filling most of the picture with the hut...

Nice! One of my favorite areas! Hiked up there in a snow storm in late September one year.

This one is not from the Sierra Nevada but I thought it was cool. Aerial of the Big Sur coast that I took this past spring.

Thanks! Yeah imagine it could get pretty wild there in a blizzard.

That's a cool, unique angle of Big Sur. It looks like a nice private beach :)

yes :)

all annotated here:

http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=0b4 ... f7b4772275

those are stitched with Microsoft ICE, since that's the only way to get them on Photosynth. Not as good as photoshop, but you get the ability to create the little thumbnails links to highlight details.

If you click on my name under the panorama, you get to see another 14 Muir Trail Panoramas. They actually put the Muir Trail Hut 360 on the front page of Photosynth this week, so expect the masses to be up there next summer :D

Mr John Dittli...I love your photos, even though the ones I'm viewing here a bit blurred. I enjoy seeing your articles and photos in the local publications.

I'll tell you one other thing I love is your video of the ice skating that appeared on the local news. More please.

Your location...Crooked Creek...beautiful fall colors up there right now, eh? I was just up McGee Friday and Crowley Lake (town) was glowing.
