Mail and Panoramas

I have finally gotten around to stitching together a handful of panoramas shot during my time in Parque Nacional Torres del Paine, plus two of my favorites from the lovely Nuevo México. Feel free to click on each image for a better view of it, and enjoy!

Photos courtesy of Sarah Hamilton, stitched by yours truly. Those specks on the rock are Kate Gruel and myself.
Same view from the rock. Mouth of Valle Bader looking across the park to the south. February 10, 2013.
Apologies, this was a rough panorama to stitch and this is only half. Basin below las Torres del Paine. January 21, 2013.
Below Cerro Almirante Nieto, 5km west of base camp. February 9, 2013.
Sunrise following Perseids meteor shower, Kiwanis meadow east side of the Sandia Crest, New Mexico. August 11, 2012.
A personal tradition and my favorite perch on this planet:
Sunset on Sandia Mountains after snowstorm, foothills near La Luz trailhead, Albuquerque, New Mexico. January 12, 2013.
All of these copies are in the low-dimension versions in order to be loaded here on the blogmabob. I use Hugin Panorama photo stitcher, a great open source software. The Hugin-2010.2.0 version worked great for me for years until I switched cameras which gave issue for some reason. After some trouble-shooting with Karl Horak and finally caving to upgrade to the latest 2012 version, all was well! I absolutely recommend it.

In other news, I am living in one solid place from now until July with only brief breaks out of the city, which means I have a mailing address!

I love mail. Hearing from you in written form will easily make my week. I also love sending mail even more, so if I don't have your mailing address (especially if you are friend who is also abroad), I would love to have it!

Much love,


  1. Hasdgafodivbha, or rather: so beautiful!These are breathtaking photos Ms. Baldwin. Many many compliments to you.

    My mailing address is:

    Ngabiphu, Thimphu

    Expect a letter from me soon! I found some handmade local paper and envelopes. Swoon.

    1. Aw, thanks m'dear : )
      Yay! I have a postcard waiting for you that I wrote in January... mail took about a month to get to the U.S. from the bottom of Chile, so hopefully things will be faster to Bhutan from Argentina.
      Also, when I wasn't on the trail in Torres del Paine, I really loved making paper--we'll have to do that for kicks next semester!

  2. Hey! I totally recognize that sunset of the Sandias... when we somehow failed to see stars and I wrote an amazing haiku about poo! Glad to see that panorama! Let me know when you get something in the same as I finally got your postcard as it took a little breather at your parents house. Many hugs!!
