Tall Tales From The Field

Panoramas? Yes or No

Below are three similar images of the marine layer rolling into Carmel Valley on California’s Pacific Ocean Coastline. The top photo was produced by stitching 3 images in Photoshop. The second photo used two images and the last was one image.

With the clouds obscuring the sun along the coast, the light was extremely flat and not worth photographing. No glorious sunset shots today.  Then I remembered from a trip here years ago, that there was a good vantage point in the highlands of Carmel Valley, overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

These images and more are available for purchase as prints or downloadable files at Dawn2Dawn Photography

  1. Lovely layers of light. It’d be a good candidate for a triptych.

  2. Strangely, my favorite 3 are the very first, where you put 3 together and the very last one.

  5. Beautiful! I loved the single frame one as much as the ones with more than one.

      • Looks like you are enjoying your stay in CA. Are you gong to move there like you mentioned awhile ago?

      • I don’t think I’ll move there, just visit a lot. I got 1 more trip planned to Cali in a few weeks
