Revisiting The Big Crater

Meteor Crater in Winslow Arizona is kind of a tourist stop off of I-40,  but it is worth a visit as it is one of the few pristine impact craters one can see here in the USA.  It's difficult to photograph as it is so damn wide.  A pano is usually suggested in my opinion.  The photo I took there a few years ago was taken with my 15mm Fisheye on a full frame camera and you can see how you barely capture the entire scene. But just so you can get an idea of how large this crater is,  take a look below at the image from space (yes it can be seen from space).....
As the space image shows,  probably the best way to get a cool image of meteor crater would be by taking an aerial image.  I think I'm adding that to my bucket list.  Now time to charge my batteries and head out to the field.

A little photo and video montage I made from images I took at the King Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

A New Year in the Smokies

One of the New Year Celebrants in the Smoky Mountains I encountered last week in the Cades Cove section of the park.  A smiling white tailed deer.

Hope everyone had a safe and happy new year and are ready for a fantastic 2012.
