Ok I got a new toy! This is actually seven images
stitched together in a panorama by a cool little
tool named PTGui.
Actually it is quite powerful. I am a bit fanatical
about image quality and size. I usually work with
16 bit originals from my scanner and the this
tool can work with them which is rare.
To truly appreciate this image you have to realize
the full resolution version is over 500 megabytes
and could easily be printed almost nine feet wide.
I have never seen anything more beautiful. I stumbled onto your site and spent all morning looking at the photography. I grew up in Santa Barbara so it is home for me. I thank you for this work, it has touched me deeply.

RE: I just have to let you know....
Thanks for your kind words of encouragement! I can't tell you how much I appreciate them, and your timing was amazing! I am just trying to get back to office work today after a holiday / photography trip. It is hard to work on other things when I just want to be creative, but it's necessary from time to time if I want to keep the lights on! With a little luck, I will soon find a printer for my first calendar. It will be a 2008 calendar of Santa Barbara images.
