Landscape with a crop.
I’ve always wanted to post a panorama on here to see how it would look and so today’s the day.
It’s a shot of the Columbia River Gorge taken from the Mosier Twin Tunnels Trail last September. From left to right the shot pans about 180 degrees from West to North to East.
And here’s a crop of the view looking west toward Hood River.
The Mosier Twin Tunnels Trail runs about 5 miles (each way) between Mosier and Hood River on the Historic Columbia River highway. The road was built in the 1930’s and beautiful old school masonry stonework like you see in the foreground is common. The section between Mosier and Hood River is closed to vehicular traffic and the wide paved roadway makes for a hike and bike trail extraordinaire featuring spectacular views of the Columbia River Gorge along with an interesting climate change from desert to forest as you pass from east to west through the twin tunnels.
Finally, here’s a short iPhone video I made on the trail last fall. Note the use of the panorama in the video. I like using panoramas in videos to produce nice steady pan shots.
