Landscape panorama photography is becoming one of the more difficult challenges I am finding these days. The concept seems easy enough and the iPhone does a great job with ease of use of this feature. However, there are many challenges a photographer is faced with when pointing to the sky to capture a landscape. Further, it becomes even more difficult photographing something uneven like a waterfall. I made a go of it this week on a hike to Nevada Fall. After trudging through a little snow and ice, we made it to the top of the waterfall for some fun and photos. While on top of Nevada Fall, I decided to try to capture a very unorthodox view of the waterfall. This was probably one of the hardest photos I’ve ever tried to take, and it took several attempts. I think the result is pretty good.

The second photo is also a bit out of the norm but I’m trying new techniques with mixed outcomes. The third one shows how impressive Liberty Cap really is.
