That's the top of the poetically-gifted Elephant Mountain, and an equally poetically-gifted cloud filled sky. One of those views where everything just seems to rhyme, with big stories to tell from little bitty words.

I've been thinking about panoramas recently. Photoshop has a neat tool for assembling and stitching a series of panned shots into one. I wasn't using a level tripod so I didn't do a very good job with this.

And here's the same set of four photos, not stitched together but placed side by side.

Oh, did I mention that the sun and clouds can put on quite a show?
Quite poetic, I think.

There you go, on that last shot. I think clouds really show their stuff in a black & white format. Using a polarizing filter really makes for some drama.
