Stitched Photography Near Broken Hand

As a photographer, one mountaineering frustration is there never seems to be a lens wide enough for the view. In the digital age there is a software fix for the problem. Stitching software lines up multiple images correctly (fun to watch) and also balances light between them so the stitching is seamless. The attached photograph of Peter and Benjamin started as five photographs taken at sunrise near Broken Hand looking west. The mountains are Bachelor through Jefferson. Because the file size needed reducing for the purpose here, the photo shows considerable compression effects, particularly in the sky.
