Five years ago today I hiked Motion Path to take this picture:

Sunshine in Stereo - Motion Path

Sunshine in Stereo – Motion Path

So, what are we looking at?

This is an inverse stereographic projection of a 360 degree panorama of Motion Head. Twelve separate photos went into this one immersive landscape image, which I made to show everything above and around me in one single shot.

Blocking most of the sunlight are the two main subjects, the rocks, each casting a shadow on the edge of the image. Look behind me (top of the image) and you can actually see their shadows touch. At this time of year the sun peeks through these glacial erratics every day for about half an hour, but to catch it you’ll have to be there at just the right time!
