Today we drove down to take a look at the City of Rocks and Castle Rocks State Park. The rocks are very impressive chunks of exposed granite and the City of Rocks harbors some of the nicest campgrounds I've seen in years. I may go back and make another photographic foray. Today I felt hurried and didn't feel that I had given this spectacular landscape the attention it deserves. This image of Elephant Rock, complete with tiny rock climbers, is composed of five handheld 60 mm macro shots that I squeezed off standing in the bed of my little pickup truck. I stitched the panorama directly from NEF files in Affinity Photo making sure to turn off default tone curve processing. When the tone curve is off the base image tone maps naturally.
