I’m Back!

As you can see from the calendar, I have not posted since the end of last year.  The job, moving to a new house, and a host of other activities have limited my time to practice photography.  But over the next several weeks, I will be posting my best images from my trip to Peru.

But this is a photo blog!  So here is just one example of a panoramic that I took at the town of Maras where the Incan salt evaporation ponds are located.  This image is huge, but I’ve resized it so it will load!  It’s 8 photos stitched together.
