Welcome/Willkommen!

Hello and welcome. Hope you enjoy the images I have posted. Please do not reproduce them without my permission. Most are available as note/greeting cards or as prints/enlargements. Thank you for visiting my site and your comments.
Many have asked about the Header image above, which I named 'Eerie Genny'. It was originally shot with film [taken on the shore of the Genesee River near the Univ. of Rochester]. During the darkroom development, I flashed a light above the tray. The process, known as 'solarization', produces eerie, ghostlike effects; some have mistaken this image as an infra-red photo. Some 35+ years later, I scanned and digitized the print, and did a little modern day editing, and, voila.

Sedona Sky Panoramas [Sky Watch Friday]

These will be the last posts from our Arizona trip. Generally, panoramas  are ‘stitched’ together as a post processing event from a series of overlapping images [usually, one tries to have adjacent shots with about 1/3 overlap].  Recently, the stitching can be done right inside some cameras. That was not the case with the shots below. While one can use images from hand-held shooting, the likelihood of success is much higher if the camera was mounted on a monopod; and, a tripod is even better. Generally, panos are made with the camera 'held' in the horizontal/landscape position; however, they can also be shot in the vertical/portrait position. The two panos were shot either on a monopod in the horizontal mode or hand-held in the vertical mode [I think you can guess which is which]. They were taken from Airport Mesa in Sedona, the best place to see the valley and catch a great sunset and get a grand overview of some of the surrounding terrain. Staring in the center, the highest peak is Capitol Butte, with Sugarloaf to the right; and, slightly in front it and to its right is a group known as Coffee Pot Rock.
