Lake Tahoe, Nevada Panorama

by Sherri on May 6, 2009

Lake Tahoe, Nevada Panorama.

Creating a panorama photograph is something I’ve wanted to try for a long time. I guess I was waiting for the right opportunity to present itself. Well, that moment finally happened, while we were visiting the Lake Tahoe area a few days ago.

Can you figure out what vantage point this was taken from? How many photos do you think were taken and stitched together to create this image? How do you think they were stitched together?

I’d love to hear from you. Please leave your answers in the comments section below. I will explain how this Lake Tahoe Panorama was created later on this month, after I receive a few comments.

Panorama Photo Update:

How this photo was created – To create this panorama, Jeff & I each took a series of 4 images. We made sure to overlap each image about 20% and to keep the horizon in approximately the same position in each photo. We decided that the series that Jeff took was the best of the two.

How this photo was developed - Using Lightroom 2.0, Jeff selected the 4 images in the order they were taken. Then he right clicked and selected export to PhotoShop as a panorama. Then PhotoShop automatically stitched the 4 images together. Then all Jeff had to do was crop off the ragged edges.


Lake Tahoe, California

After leaving Blue Lake, we drove south on 395 and headed for Fallen Leaf  Campground, in South Lake Tahoe.

Some of our friends joined us there for the last leg of our road trip. While we were there, we hiked the spectacular Mount Tallac Trail.

This photo was taken during our hike. There are so many photos of Lake Tahoe that all look pretty much the same. I wanted to capture a more unique shot of this very popular subject.

Here is another post I wrote about our visit to Lake Tahoe.

Mt. Tallac Trail

Our final destination during our road trip was Fallen Leaf Lake Campground, in South Lake Tahoe, California. We live less than 2 hours away from the most popular lake in the country (also known as “Lake in the sky”), but we usually avoid it because of the crowds.
