    View for miles west across wildflower expanses from near Jubilee Pass Road at Death Valley National Park road trip February 15, 2016. An 8 frame 4 column by 2 row 50 image focus stack blend, stitch blend for 12000x8600 pixels using my A6000 with Sigma 60mm F2.8 DN lens atop a Nodal Ninja III MKII panoramic head, processed with Kolar Autopano and Photoshop CS6.

    Was at peak of current bloom, the strongest since 2005 a bit before 9am when breezes totally calmed for about an hour for the first time on my 5 day road trip that was also the only day with crystal clear air. The above image including enlarged versions and a feature story is on Page 2 and Page 3 of this Contents page:

    Nice pano. I had a look at your "chronicles" and all I can say is WOW! I was there a couple of years ago and can't believe that this area can produce so many beautiful flowers. I wish I could afford to visit it now to see this sight. You have some great pics in the "chronicles". I would encourage all viewers to have a look at them.

    Thanks folks.

    Shot with my A6000 with Sigma 60mm F2.8 DN plus Vello 10mm extension tube and diffusion disk, a 5 image Zerene Stacker focus stack blend then Photoshop CS6 processed 2800x3700 pixels. Enlarged vertical slice:
