Sunrise over Boulder Beach - Aaron Priest Photography

Acadia National Park, Maine, October 4, 2016, 06:37

My buddy, Scott Stulberg, taught a fall workshop in Acadia National Park and I helped out as a guest instructor for a couple days. What a great group of people—we had a lot of fun! This is a single row panorama of sunrise at Boulder Beach. I kept it low key for an exposure because I didn’t want to overexpose the sun or sky and I liked the deep, rich colors of dawn’s first light on the cliffs and boulders, as well as the silhouette of the photographers to the left. The stitched image is 36372 x 7275 or ~265 megapixels and 152 x 30 inches as a print. Click here to zoom in and pan around.

Camera settings: 70mm, f/18, ISO 64, 1/5 sec Stitching data: 1 rows of 11 images

Equipment used: Nikon D810, Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8, Nodal Ninja RD16-II rotator, and Really Right Stuff TVC-34L tripod & panning head. RAW conversion via Lightroom, aligned via PTGui, and manually blended via masks in Photoshop. Planned with PhotoPills.
