Valley morning

The sunrise was muted by a thick layer of clouds this morning. On a technical note, forgive the chatter on the right side of this image. Although the new generation of Point & Shoot cameras generally does a nice job of the seamless reconstruction of panoramic images in bright light, they do less well in low light. To capture this sort of image the camera shoots upward of one hundred images and then neatly stitches these together. On a bright day the shutter speed is fast and can keep pace as you sweep the camera lens across the scene. Under more muted conditions the shutter speed is slower and lags behind the movement. I should have been aware of this and swept the camera more slowly across the horizon. In any event, I thought the image was worthy of a post this morning.
