Themes: Panoramic Photos

These images are in a panoramic format which is ideal for those awkward places such as above doorways, stairways and other narrow areas in the home or office.

Pillar of Fire

Have you ever had an experience, perhaps an encounter with beauty that was more than any words could convey? As John O'Donohue writes, "We feel most alive in the presence of the Beautiful for it meets the needs of our soul. For a while...we glimpse behind the shudder of appearances the sure form of things.". Photo © copyright by Erik Stensland.

McClure Pano 1

This is a beautiful aspen grove at McClure Pass, Colorado. I often have people ask me for large panoramic aspen prints so I did this one which can be cropped and printed to almost any size up to nearly 20 feet long!  It is a composite of 9 high resolution images. (Since such a wide variety of print sizes is available with this image we weren't able to list them all. If you are interested in this print or want to see a larger version to evaluate, please contact us.). Photo © copyright by Erik Stensland.

Winter at Vik

The black sand beach at Vik looks especially interesting with a fresh coat of snow and an 11:30am sunrise on a cold December morning. Photo © copyright by Erik Stensland.

Towards Autumn

The aspen leaves in this grove were in transition, moving from their spring to autumn colors along Kebler Pass, Colorado. This one works as either a 1x2 or 1x3 panorama with lots of beautiful detail. Photo © copyright by Erik Stensland.

Aurora Road-H

On an icy night in Iceland when no one was watching magical lights took to the sky and danced to a silent melody. Photo © copyright by Erik Stensland.

Sunrise at the Factory

Factory Butte in Utah was amazing on this morning. The clouds just exploded with color. This was one of those moments when I wish that I could make time stand still and enjoy this silent beauty. Photo © copyright by Erik Stensland.

Mountain Ripples

 I don't normally shoot black and white, but on this occasion I felt like it better emphasized the ripples in the mountains showing the texture as the sun set on this stormy evening. It is cropped to be a panorama. Photo © copyright by Erik Stensland.

Cornish Headlands

One of my favorite places in the UK is Cape Cornwall. The land seems to stretch itself out into the sea as far as it can go but the miles of blue beyond it are endless. It is such an inviting place that makes you want to sit and ponder eternity. Photo © copyright by Erik Stensland.

Virgins of Zion Pano

The Towers of the Virgin in Zion National Park put on a very nice show at sunrise. It was quite amazing to watch the rocks light up, the shadows compliment the scene while the sky behind maintained its color. It was a real treat. Photo © copyright by Erik Stensland.

Endless Road

 This image of a winding road in Valley of the Gods, Utah captures something of that classic desert southwest feel as the road disapears amongst the towering buttes. I chose black and white as I felt that it better conveyed the feel fo the loction. Photo © copyright by Erik Stensland.

Green River April Pano

There are few places on this earth which compare with the view of the Green River from high above at Deadhorse State Park in Utah. I think it is even more spectacular than the Grand Canyon. This place is almost impossible to capture with a single image so this one is a composite of 6 high resolution images in an attempt to communicate the vastness and detail of the scene. Photo © copyright by Erik Stensland.

Desert Layers

On my way back towards Moab from Deadhorse State Park I noticed these layers of ridges in the distance. I found a pull off and did my best to capture this interesting scene. I'm not sure exactly which formations these are but I'm glad that I stopped. Since the scene was already very monochromatic, I decided to process it in black and white to more clearly emphasize the shapes. Photo © copyright by Erik Stensland.

Deadhorse Sunrise April

There are few places on this earth which compare with the view of the Green River from high above at Deadhorse State Park in Utah. I think it is even more spectacular than the Grand Canyon. This place is almost impossible to capture with a single image so this one is a composite of 8 high resolution images in an attempt to communicate the vastness and detail of the scene.

Afternoon at Horseshoe

This is a heavily photographed spot near Page, Arizona. The Colorado river winds its way southward through this very deep gorge. To shoot this I stood on tiptoes near the edge so that I could get a good view straight down. To be different, I shot this image as a stitched panoramic which is comprised of nearly 30 photos allowing me to print this in extremely large sizes. It can be cropped in different formats and I have it both with boats in the water and without. Contact me for pricing and size options. Photo © copyright by Erik Stensland.

Bisti Celebration

As day breaks over the desert of the Bisti Wilderness in New Mexico the world  awakens to life. For a few moments, all of creation seems to sing with joy. Even the rocks appear to cry out with words of praise to their Creator. Then, just a few minutes later, all is again quiet. A deep stillness covers the land as it goes back to patiently waiting.

Classic Kirkjufell

One of the most iconic scenes of Iceland and with good reason. Kirkjufell is a spectacular mountian and one of this planet's most photogenic. Photo © copyright by Erik Stensland.
