While making some updates to the Utah3D.Net website, I spent some time viewing an older panorama which has been a favorite of mine and many others, and realized it was time for a facelift. This scene is in Payson Canyon, along the Nebo Loop Road, in an area called Maple Bench. I’ve reworked it using the original source files and come up with what I feel is an improved image (maybe when I first made it I was in a bad mood?…)
Hope you enjoy it!
I’ve previously featured panoramas taken in Payson Canyon, and now with one more, some of you may start thinking I need to get out more, and take a real vacation or something like that. I like to think however, that shooting some things close to home gives the advantage of going back (and back, and back…) until conditions are just right:
This grove is next to Maple Lake, along the Nebo Loop Road which runs from Payson to the Nephi area.
P.S. Oct 7, 2010 – I’ve just reworked this image, as what I had posted earlier was a little over the top saturation wise. You may want to refresh your browser if you’ve viewed this before. – Martin van Hemert
Along the Nebo Loop Road in Payson Canyon, Utah, lies a great little water fall which is popular among the locals and very easy to get to:
After 5 visits to this spot to get it right, I’ve gotten some exercise, realized that a waterfall doesn’t need to be big to be good looking, and learned that I can screw-up a shot more often than I thought possible.
If you happen to show up without battery packs and lights (but doesn’t everyone carry these?), it looks more like this:
If you have a favorite out of these, I would enjoy reading your comments!
