Knight and Lady Peaks with Mt. Cheam on the right (also known as Cheam Peak). Mt. Cheam is a familiar sight to those who live in the Fraser Valley. This panorama was taken from the vantage point of Seabird Island between Aggasiz and Hope. I will try this shot again when the winter snow is on the peaks and maybe a bit less haze in the sky.

In May I took my first trip through North Cascades National Park. Though I did not venture far from Hwy 20 there were mountain peaks everywhere you looked. This being late spring, there was still snow blanketing most of them. I will be travelling through there again in October and now that I know a few of the sights that await me I will be taking my time.
I am sure I am abusing the term panorama by calling this a “macro panorama” but it seems the easiest term for this. Would have been much easier with a panorama specific clamp on my ballhead but I did okay sliding my tripod instead. I wouldn’t want to use that method every time if I were to do a lot of stuff like this though.
