With over 1000 photos to process though, I have enough processing to do for months on end. For that reason, I am in no rush to process them all. There are so many, and each has so much potential but I need to give it the attention it deserves. Of course, there were a few from the 1000 that I was in a rush to process when I returned to Kelowna. There were ones that just stood out vividly in my mind for the entire trip, with a quiet pondering inside... "i cant wait to see what that one is going to look like"
I have to give Mr. Skigon, Eric Frigon, a big thanks for having a spare bedroom and the use of his tripod. Whats the smallest thing you really CAN'T forget for landscape photography? ya thats what I forgot. The baseplate to my camera that locks it to my tripod. So without him, a lot of my shots wouldn't have been possible. Stay tuned for more about Skigon. He is a landscape photographer who is just getting his website together, and when its online, I'll surely be sharing some links.
I should always make more panoramas, but like figuring out how to walk in a new set of legs, the loaner tripod was foreign to me. I would rather have no panorama at all, than one that will cause headaches to put together - at least those are my thoughts in the field. Luckily I did do a few, like moraine lake and lake louise, but in retrospect there are always things I should have done differently. Meaning - I gotta go back and do it a second time. :)
Also, there were loads of HDR frames shot during my trip, and sometimes those HDRs were combined with panoramas to make behemoth 32-bit images, and 30+ megapixel images. Try figuring out the file size on one of those, i dare you. Lots of exciting photos on the way, which will slowly trickle onto the world wide web eventually. Stay tuned for them!
