Panoramic Photo of Half Dome and Washington Column from Stoneman Meadow, Yosemite Valley

Yosemite Valley offers panoramic views that, in many cases, cannot be effectively captured with a single photograph (a frame of film or a single digital image capture). Stitching photographs together digitally offers a way to produce panoramic images using non-panoramic cameras. Below is an example of this technique, considering Half Dome and Washington Column viewed from Stoneman Meadow in Spring. A series of eight digital photographs were taken, with considerable overlap between each, and then stitched together using software to produce a panorama that spans 270 degrees along the horizontal plane:
