As of this writing, there are about 700 panoramas within the Grand Canyon Panorama Project. Only about half of them have been completed and are available for viewing in the project, and only about 20 of those have narrations. In due time all the narrations within the project will be completed and narrated. But none of that happens overnight. It takes about a day to build a panorama from the raw images photographed in the field, and it usually takes about another day to create a narration. Do the math on those numbers, and you’ll see that right now there is a backlog of 5 man-years of work to complete all the panoramas in the project. And, of course, I’m not done hiking! So long as I have a good pair of legs to carry me down into and back up and out of the canyon, and a good back to haul my pack and my camera gear within it, I’ll be venturing into the canyon several times a year, each time returning with a new set of panoramas to add to the project.
Work on the Grand Canyon Panorama Project has been going on in one way or another for 15 years. For the last 5 years, after retiring from my day job, I have worked on the project full time, and I plan to continue to work on the project full time for the foreseeable future. But that will be possible only through the generosity of you and other friends of the project. And now, with the project coming fully online, there will be hosting fees to pay, as well as just keeping myself and my family going!
So head on over to the donation page, and learn about the gifts of posters, framing, and panorama sponsorship we offer for different levels of contributions.
