I posted this to facebook and Flickr first. My apologies.
Here’s a HDR panorama that I took last night. The clouds were spectacular and I went on a small walkabout as the sun was setting. When I got out of the housing and away from the trees, I could see the full glory of what I could only glimpse a part. Six frames (three shots each) processed and then stitched. This is a 1/3 scale of the final image:
The clear blue sky was interrupted by spectacular formations that were both large and high.
Then sunset began. Here is a large and threatening formation that thankfully remained south of our home. The bubbles in the upper left might be indications of hail.
So there I was. . .
True story. In command of a supply and support company in Afghanistan. 2003-ish. Slingload missions seems aplenty. I decided to take my somewhat rudimentary Nikon out to capture these mission in-action. Here’s one I recently rediscovered.
Watching my oldest and her team handle the opponent nicely, I grabbed some lucky shots. After all, I had already access and timing; I only needed some luck to produce these shots.
