Phil Konstantin's Panorama Photographs - Page 5
Utah #3: Dinosaur Nat. Mon., Mt. Nebo, Bryce



I love to take photographs. Over the years (I've had a website since 1996), I have literally posted tens of thousands of my photos online. I also enjoy merging individual photos into panoramas. Long before the internet and digital photography, I used to do this. My living room has several large groups of photos which were literally "cut and pasted" together to form one long photo. Digitally, some of these conversions have worked well, some have not. I have used a variety of software to construct my panoramas: including PhotoImpact, Photoshop and a variety of stand alone Panorama software. Currently, I am in the process of finding all of my panoramas and posting them on one, all-inclusive, website (this one). So far, there is no specific order to the content, other than somewhat chronological. This will probably change in the future. On these pages, the original photos appear next to the merged panorama.

Each group below will have the individual photos on the left, and the panoramic photos I made from them on the right.

Split Mountain at Dinosaur National Monument - Vernal, Utah - October 13, 2007
Split Mountain, the name John Wesley Powell gave to one of the Dinosaurís most recognizable features, is aptly named: over millions of years, the Green River has carved a canyon into the center of the mountain, splitting it in two.

Another Split Mountain panorama - Dinosaur National Monument - Vernal, Utah - October 13, 2007
Formerly buried beneath the landscape, erosion has uncovered Split Mountain, and the channel of the Green River is now superimposed onto it. The river has cut through soft and hard rock, producing wide valleys and narrow gorges, respectively.

"Petroglyphs at Dinosaur National Monument -
Vernal, Utah - October 13, 2007

Per the National Park Service:
"Fremont designs include both petroglyphs (patterns chipped
or carved into the rock) and pictographs (patterns painted
on the rock). Pictographs are relatively rare here, perhaps
because they are more easily weathered. Some petroglyphs
show traces of pigment, possibly indicating that many
designs originally included both carved and painted areas.
Many sandstone cliffs darkened with desert varnish, a
naturally formed stain of iron and manganese oxides,
provided an ideal canvas for carving petroglyphs. Most
of these designs are outlines, but some are completely
pecked to form solid figures, and a few consist of small
holes in closely-spaced rows.

The style and content of Fremont designs vary throughout
the region. The "Classic Vernal Style" predominates in
Dinosaur National Monument. This style is characterized
by human-like figures, animal-like figures, and abstract
designs. Human figures typically have trapezoidal bodies,
which may or may not include arms, legs, fingers, and
toes. Elaborate decorations on the bodies suggest
headdresses, earrings, necklaces, shields, or other
objects.

The animal figures include recognizable bighorn sheep,
birds, snakes, and lizards, as well as more abstract
animal-like shapes. Purely abstract or geometric
designs, such as circles, spirals, and various
combinations of lines, are common."

Farview Point (Bryce Canyon, Utah - August 24, 2008) is
appropriately named, with spectacular views of famous
landmarks that make up the Grand Staircase. From north
to south you can see: the Aquarius Plateau (Pink Cliffs),
the Kaiparowits Plateau (Grey Cliffs), Molly's Nipple
(White Cliffs), and even glimpses of the Kaibab Plateau
on which lies the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. These
magnificent views result from Bryce Canyon's extremely
high air quality, with potential visibility as far away
as the Black Mesas in Arizona - up to 160 miles! Navajo
Mountain, 90 miles away on the border of Utah and Arizona,
can be seen on all but the worst days. While many
visitors are awed by the beautiful things they see
here, it is what they don't see (the haze and smog
produced by particulates in the air) that is one of
Bryce Canyon's most valued assets. Elevation: 8819 feet
