This is another image that marks one of my first few attempts at a panoramic composition using the PhotoMerge feature in Photoshop. One of my personal favorite images from the Eastern Sierra was taken many years ago in the same area, and also shows cattle grazing in the Round Valley. After being held up in Bishop waiting out several days of very strong storms, a clear morning prompted me to revisit that location. While the images contain similar subject matter from a similar location, the difference in the photos is fairly striking.

To me, this really reinforces the idea of how different light can render a particular landscape, along with the mood and feeling the resulting image evokes. The panorama feels very tranquil, peaceful, and bucolic. The earlier image is more like a rugged, pioneering-type image with overtones of foreboding. Would you agree?
