Back in the 206

We arrived home this morning from our trip to Utah and Arizona. We left Scottsdale, Arizona on the 5:00 am on Thursday, May 11th and pulled into our driveway at 2:19 am the next morning- we were both fresh as daisies.

On this trip, we visited Zion National Park, Snow Canyon State Park, Kolob Canyons (part of Zion), Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Monument Valley, and drove the Apache Trail.

We had planned to visit Hoover Dam but decided to spend more time at Zion National Park- we did, however, drive very quickly past the dam.

I have around 28,000 images to sort and catalog. Approximately 27,000 are panorama image tiles for an estimated 170 panoramas, and the remaining 1000 images are for single images- I used 3 shot bracketing for many images.

For each panorama, the files are downloaded into Lightroom and converted to DNG files. Each panorama is then sorted into a folder, each file is renamed, keyworded, titled, and geotagged. Next, in Lightroom’s Development module I select the Sony A7Sii custom camera profile, select the lens correction, and then synchronize the image tiles. Finally, I place into the panorama file folder the Roundshot VR Drive’s papywizard file. The images are now ready to render into panoramas.

I could not resist and I quickly rendered an HDR image and a panorama- both taken at Monument Valley.
