After writing about the Alps in the previous posts, I decided to share a picture taken from a much smaller mountain on the other side of the Atlantic. I had been by the Delaware Water Gap a few times and had read about it, and wanted to go the top of the mountains on either side. Mt. Tammany is on the New Jersey side and reaches a height of 1,526 feet (465 m). The hike is fairly short and easy. In 2007 I made the trek to the top of Mt. Tammany and was treated with the spectacular view. Hopefully I will get to Mt. Minsi on the Pennsylvania side soon. With such a view of the vast landscape you realize how small you are. The feeling of smallness is both amazing and scary.
This picture was taken with the first camera I bought after I made an effort to photograph better and more. It is actually three photos stitched together in Photoshop. With the fall colors, I was very happy with the results. The camera had a stitch function so it was easy to identify the pictures I wanted to use for the panoramic shot. But really any set of pictures taken in a row works with the photo merge function.
Camera: Canon Powershot A520
