Geo 365: May 27, Day 147: Central Newberry Caldera

This one's a kind of oddball, a panorama of two photos that were clearly taken without the intent or forethought that I might stitch them together later. However, I think that this does a nice job of highlighting some features of the Central Rift that I discussed yesterday.

And I just got distracted for a good half hour. Flicker, where I've started hosting some of these larger photos, has changed its layout and policies, apparently. You can now see these photos in full resolution. Follow that link, left-click on a photo of interest to bring it up in a "lightbox," then right-click on that image and select "original." You're welcome! Many of those images are ones I've not yet written about, some of them I have. Feel free to ask if you want to know whether there's more info available. Also, Flicker does not provide an option (so far as I've seen) to label things as Creative Commons Copyright. Feel free to use these for non-profit and educational uses, with attribution.

The above photo was stitched in HugIn, then opened in The blank areas were paint bucket filled with sampled nearby colors, then the whole thing run through the autolevel adjustment routine. This often ends up making a photo garishly, unnaturally vivid, and I think the above verges on that problem. However, in this case, it's not too bad, and more importantly, it's closer to what I recall than the hazy, washed-out colors of the original photo.

I'm loving the changes to Flickr as well. Use the Organizr to change permissions in bulk. You can also set the license to be CC by default.
This should take you to your Organizr if you are logged in:

Drag photos into the editor area and click on the "Permissions" dropdown menu and then "Change licensing"
