Day 110

Wow! Time is really flying! I can't believe it's been 110 days since I started this. I'm really having fun with it, and I've already learned some great things from this exercise.

Mom had an appointment in Hamilton today, and we had a few extra minutes after, so I took the scenic route home. I stopped to try to get some shots for a panorama - I've done a couple, but not since I got my DSLR. Wilky has inspired me to try it more often. Here's a pano of the Bitterroot Mountains in Ravalli County, Montana. (click it for a better view)

We also got to see/watch some eagles while we were out on the back roads. I liked the triangle of branches framing this guy, but I don't think I captured it quite the way I wanted...

Wow! I wanna go to Montana! Great Eagle image.
Pano - I imagine is panoramic image right? but did you have to "stitch" it togerther to get that amazing image?

Awesome. I believe you have less snow there than I have here. Maybe I should move back to Montana country. :) I am definitely thinking about doing this 365 day thing...especially during the winter when it will force me to go out and take photos. Thanks for the inspiration :)

WOW - those are beautiful!

Great panorama! And incredible eagle shot! I saw the triangle frame after you pointed it out. Maybe if you cropped in closer and burned around the edges of the triangle....Just an idea, it's great as is!

That is a gorgeous pano shot! Just a note, watch that stitch line on the left in the sky. You can do some cloning to clear that up and it'll be even more amazing than it is! :)

I wish I could see an eagle that close! Beautiful!

Nice pano, you just need to clone a couple of sky bits, very nice looking country, so much world to see and so little time :-)

It's not often that I have time to look at other blogs your photography has improved so much you should be pleased with your self :-)

I fixed the stitch line in the panorama and uploaded the new version.

Very nice job Elli (at least, when it didn't crash my computer...)

Love that Pano!
