   When I originally made this series of photographs of Christine Falls in Mount Rainier National Park I had intended to stitch them into a vertical panorama (vertorama). Displaying regular, horizontal panoramas is tough – the vertical variety is even more difficult. Upon actually stitching these together the results were a bit lacking, and displaying them individually seemed out of context without the other two. So I’ve tried making them into the triptych you see above. I haven’t done this before, but I think it works well with these 3 images. Do you think I was successful with this attempt? Do you ever shoot images specifically for this sort of presentation?

Christine Falls – Mt. Rainier National Park

This is Christine Falls in Mt. Rainier National Park. The last time I stopped to photograph Christine Falls, Mt. Rainier National Park was quite busy and there was a considerable lineup for the viewpoint. This time (in mid October) there were few people around and I could take all the time I wanted. Much more relaxing than having in the back of your mind that people are lined up waiting for your spot. The water level was also a bit lower on this occasion which I think yielded a nicer shot and let the blue colour of the water show through better.

The Nisqually River is fed by the Nisqually Glacier on the southern side of Mt. Rainier. Heavy flooding in 2006 eroded the banks. I’m sure I would have wanted to be anywhere near the place when it crested.

Nisqually River just south of the Cougar Rock Campground. 9 exposures stitched – Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM.
