Running... Again?

  If you know me you know there was a time about 10 years ago or so where I was running. A lot. At least 5 days a week and at least 5 miles a run. I wasn’t training, I wasn’t preparing for a race or a marathon. I just found myself enjoying the time spent running. I wasn’t obsessed with numbers, but I kept track of them all and liked seeing improvements in time and distances. It was good physical health and mental health. Then I tweaked my knee. Not bad enough that I couldn’t walk on it, just a tweak that told me I needed to back off of running for a little bit. So I decided on 2 weeks. At the end of 2 weeks I aborted a run very early as the pain was still there. 2 weeks became 3, became a month, became 5 years. 

Fogged in Panorama

Fogged in College Cove
7 Shot Panorama
On a rare sunny day in Humboldt I was able to trek to get this 7 shot panorama of College Cove with Pewetoll Island and Trinidad Head being fogged in.

This is a seven shot panorama processed in Photoshop for the actual stitching. I also ran it through Hugin, but have been finding Photoshop's stitching to be more consistent. I thought Hugin would handle these shots better since it was handheld, but Photoshop just beat out Hugin. I then ran two copies of the photo through Nik and Topaz Labs software and at the end I chose the Topaz Labs processed version. In Adjust I used the Vibrance pre-set and fiddled with the adjustments from there. Then to finish it I took to Detail. I had originally envisioned this shot in black and white, but wasn't able to get it together in time for posting, though I think I'll try it later.
