Carter Mountain, located about 20-miles/32Km southwest of Cody, Wyoming, USA. The mountain is volcanic in origin, made up of many layers of lava of various types and densities. The mountain is something of a pet project of mine. It dominates all of the lower end of the valley of the South Fork of the Shoshone River. It actually runs about another 8-10 miles further to the right, angling off straight away from this viewpoint. The steep vertical face on the right end of the mountain tops out at 12,187 feet (3715 meters), and the actual summit, about a mile away, is at 12,319 ft. (3755 M) making it one of the tallest mountains in the area.
This was taken on the evening of May 17, 2007, about 1/2 hour before local sunset. The late spring snows are melting out and the lower slopes are greening up nicely with the mild weather and recent moisture.
It's a stitched panorama, consisting of 12 horizontal frames shot with a Canon PowerShot S3 IS, mounted on a leveled tripod with panoramic head, stitched using Photoshop CS4 Photomerge and corrected for contrast. The final Large Format PSD file is 211-megabytes in size. The geo-location is the point from where the image was taken, which is north of the mountain itself, and across the Buffalo Bill Reservoir west of Cody.
