Alabama Hills, Lone Pine, CA.

I had to get a new phone a couple weeks ago.  It's a story I'll not get into here just that my old phone was handicapped and a retirement was in order for it.  Just a few days ago I discovered the camera on this phone does panorama pictures.  No more taking photos side by side like below.

The different type of rock layer forming this band I find intriguing. 

I wish I knew more about geology.

I wanted to capture the wide view I have from our home site

with the Sierra Mountains as a back drop.

Later I discovered the panorama feature on my new iPhone 5SE


  1. The miracles of technology afre endless and full surprises.

  2. Have you heard any more news about your home in Santa Rosa?

  3. Stunning scenery! So huge, we can see so far, so rocky. Amazing.

  4. I see a lot of these rock formations in Joshua Tree. I think they are called dikes (or dykes): "A sheet of rock that formed in a fracture in a pre-existing rock body". Very interesting looking.

  5. Love the photos! That area will always be home to me. Thanks for sharing them.

  6. From the look a worth investment, I don't regret getting my iPhone for panoramic a like that
