Caribou migrating in Alaska’s arctic
Alaska’s caribou are nomadic ungulates that traverse hundreds of miles across much of Alaska. In the arctic, their presence is sporadic due to their varied movements. On occasion, if one is lucky, large herds can be observed migrating and feeding on Alaska’s arctic north slope. While this group of animals never came very close for photography, their dispersed position across a majestic landscape was an impressive sight. To help show the expansiveness of the region, I stitched together four horizontal images to create this panorama. The process of creating stitched panos has become so simple with the sophistication of the latter versions of Photoshop that is almost scary. I remember the days of needing to learn a completely dedicated program for this, that was somewhat complicated. Now I select the images in Lightroom and then choose merge to panorama in photoshop and in a few minutes, there it is.
