The view above is from Tibbet Knob in the George Washington National Forest, basically the sister hike to another favorite of mine, Big Schloss. Both hikes are pretty easy if you’re in good shape, but throw in hot and humid conditions and the hike is a little harder than I want to admit.
This past weekend, part of the reason for hiking was to get out with Rudy, our recently adopted Labrador. But even during the middle of the day I wanted to also make photography part of the reason for being there as well.
The panorama above is handheld and stitched in Photoshop. I shot it with a D200 converted to Infrared by LifePixel. Using the Infrared is a great choice when the conditions are too harsh for color photography.
