Torrey Pines Panorama

A couple weeks ago, we hiked through the Torrey Pines State Reserve just north of La Jolla, California.  The weather wasn’t great, but the hike was breathtaking.

We took a series of pictures (a total of 8), which we stitched together in Photoshop to create a long panorama.  This took a while, working on a laptop, but the result took us back to the reserve and the view of the dunes, cliffs, pines and Pacific.  We used a tip we heard at some photo workshop:  Hold the camera in portrait mode, so that you get more coverage on the vertical axis, then move from side to side, overlapping about 25% on each shot.

The original file is huge.  It would be 53 inches long if printed at the original resolution.  This is a mini-version 🙂
