Wild rice, canoeists, fall color on the Island River (panoramic)

7 posts in this topic

Hey all:

This is a stitched panoramic of three images, not a panoramic crop of a single image. The light was so perfect this morning along the Island River where it went under Tomahawk Road near the Pow Wow Trail that when I spotted this pair in a canoe amid the wild rice I had to try it. Because of the distance, a stitched pano seemed right. The light stayed consistent for about 20 seconds before changing, so that was good. grin

It really demands a large presentation, which is why I made it a good bit longer than normal for posting. Depending on your screen size and resolution settings, you may have to pan side to side to see it all.

Canon 30D, Canon 400 f5.6L, manual exposure settings, iso400, 1/2000 at f5.6, monopod

Thanks guys. X, it's not hard at all. The PhotoStitch software I use (pretty much always just on the automatic settings) came with your 30D, and as long as one is careful to use a tripod, keep it level, use manual exposure settings (so the meter doesn't change exposure as you move from one side to the next of a scene) and overlap the images somewhat, it's not hard.

And it's a lot of fun turning an 8 Mp camera into a 24 or a 32 or, a couple times, a 64 Mp camera! gringrin

    • We can only hope to catch a bigger party crappie than him! 
    •   I never followed the Farve story, so don't know the details.  If I had to guess, it would be similar to Rush's.. Rush's story was more interesting to me because he is such a complete hypocrite on the issue.   Arizona hasn't legalized weed, but they are taking on the prescription drug problem, which is the root of the hard drug problem.  (You know, the part you and the feds refuse to acknowledge.)  I suggest you view the "RX to Addiction" video I posted earlier, and the link above to see what steps they are taking.    The feds actually act as an enabler for hard drug addiction.   If you have done your homework at all, you should know this.     Pointing out the double standard for enforcement of drug laws is part of the answer, which again, you refuse to acknowledge.          
    • How come you aren't talking about Bret Farve? Same as Rush, didn't go to jail either.   Are you aware of any cases of people going to jail for this behavior?   They don't seem to make the news.     AZ way behind, several states already have legalized recreational weed.   It is coming nation wide.     For me, the real question is what are sometimes called "hard drugs".   Heroin, Cocaine, Meth being the big three with a whole bunch of others like fetanyl etc.    Making them legal and sold otc like recreational marijuana seems to me like it would be a bad idea, although there are folks that seem to think otherwise.   And they are part of the "war on drugs"     So, I keep asking the folks here who are saying "end the war on drugs" what that means.     So far, not much for concrete answers.   Fingerpointing at affluent pill addicts that get treatment, or those that die, is not an answer.     

    • Of course they are Nick, that is what they do. The sad part is you only think one party is capable of this, your not nearly as dense as JV so you should be picking up on these things by now. Just because one party is less evil in your eyes doesn't mean you shouldn't see through their negative contributions to this country.

    • Hardly, I'm advocating we had the worst two choices in the history of America that I am aware of. Well done two party system, you make yourself less relevant by the day.

    • Ha ya I didn't realize he was that bad. I haven't heard anything relating to protecting players at the trade deadline CM so hopefully that is bunk. I suspect Chuck waits until the prices come down and picks up someone for cheap that will be just a filler, these guys are going for pretty high prices right now.

    • Isn't this up your ally Del? He probably has some success but it would depend on the "patient". Many people have probably healed themselves through the placebo of religious beliefs. If it works it works, who am I to argue if they are getting results but I will admit I doubt anything works across the board for everyone, we already proved that with modern medicine. 
    •       But Trump is going to make America Great Again, so he should be more open with his press briefings, even if it means some of the reporters aren't always friendly.
