Labeled Mount Whitney Panorama

Labeled Mount Whitney Panorama

Labeled Mount Whitney Panorama The 32 frames which resulted in this panorama were shot at about 5 pm on 26 June 2013...thoroughly lucking out with visibility and a nice smattering of clouds for drama. Over the ensuing 6+ months, I used personal knowledge and a combination of, and DeLorme Topo USA to identify 450 place names...mostly peaks. A few of these labels required up to a 1/2-hour each to achieve confidence in ID. From the highest point around, it's the ultimate 3-D puzzle to solve. 100 of the least significant labels were removed to facilitate clarity. More months were spent photo-editing with Paint Shop Pro8 to achieve the result, since this was never planned in the first place (ie, hand-held, a wannabe DSLR, etc.)...but friends made me do it! Prints available from SORTABLE INDEX (MS Word table)available from:

Great job

That is a lot of work.

Maybe you should attach an index table.

Re: Great job

Wow, good idea. I've already got one; just didn't think of appending it (a lotta pages).

Thanks for your meticulous and sublime photography!

Well, I've got to hand it to you Paul, you have an amazing amount of patience. I don't know too many folks who would take the time to do what you have done. What an accomplishment! This should be in some magazine ... Perhaps you should submit it to the Sierra Club for publication in their monthly magazine. I believe it is called "Sierra."

Full resolution Panos still available? doesn't work and the email is broken as well. Just wondering if these are still available in high resolution.
