Landscape and Panoramic Photography

Willow Flat Sandstone and Clouds

This sandstone formation watches over the Willow Flat campground in Canyonlands National Park. I noticed the dramatic clouds over the rocks, and I decided to take both a short-exposure and a long-exposure panorama of the scene. Notice the clouds streaking/streaming in the second panorama. Side note: I had trouble stitching together the second panorama: the ND filter vignettes each individual frame, so there is slight streaking between frames that I couldn’t eliminate in the stitching process. After a few hours of dodging/burning work in Photoshop, I had to just give up and go with it (which really bothers me).
