Learning to Pano - Scarab Lake

After hiking down hill from the Healy Pass, it seemed too close to pass up the chance to hike up to nearby Scarab Lake, and see the view from the top of the falls. From Healy Pass, you can see both Scarab and Egypt Lake, with an impressive cascade between them, and it really doesn't look that far away until you consider the elevation factor.... Still... here is Scarab Lake - interesting, although probably more stunning in the sunlight, suddenly shy after being out most of the day before and after we visited the lake.

This is my first attempt at stitching together Panoramas. After a few tries with some different options, it turned out that the free software that comes with Cannon's Cameras (Photostitch) was the best available option for our budget. Gimp was a total wash and Photostudio (the ancient version that came with my scanner) struggled. I know I have a bit to learn about how to take pictures for a panorama so the colours come out and things line up easily... but if you don't try, you won't learn, right.
