Stitched Panoramas: Baja California, Mexico

These photos were taken on our recent trip to Baja California, Mexico. I’ve posted them in the order I took them over the course of a week. In my next post I will go into further detail about the location, but for now I wanted to show you the larger panoramas that I took with my iPhone on our daily hikes up into the hills that surrounded the property.

The ecosystem here is described as California coastal sage and chaparral. I was told while on the trip that it is desert or desert-like, but still close enough to the coast to receive some wetness and humidity. I would describe the plantscape as “scrubby,” populated by woody, leathery-leaved herbs and succulents, including sagebrush, buckwheat, yucca, and agave (to name a few).

I was surprised to discover that there were also rivers (mostly dry) and a few small oak woodland areas that provided a shady respite from the midday heat. You can see one such woodland in the bottom right of this picture (above).

Panoramas from a later portion of our trip as well as a how-to can be seen over here.

  1. Love the photos, reminds me of a trip I took to Baja in Dec when the river beds were dry as well……such a beautiful, wild place

  2. How’d you get the pictures to look so cool? Is it just because you pieced a bunch of photos together in photoshop, or is it a specific app or something that does it all for you?

    • Hi Phil,

      I’ve got instruction over here. I’ve done this by hand in the past using Photoshop & photos from various cameras; however, these are all done with an app and the photos take with my phone. It’s really easy and I love the outcome.
