Beaver Pond by Eagle Lake

The weather didn’t cooperate for one evening of our night sky workshop last month at Acadia Images Photograph Workshops, so we found some other interesting things to shoot. This is a small beaver pond near Eagle Lake on Mount Desert Island during civil twilight around 8PM on May 17, 2015. It was very windy with rolling fog blowing through, making it a challenge to shoot panoramas and video.

The full size panorama consists of 3 rows of 11 photos, measures ~707 megapixels (43921 x 14640), and can be printed up to 146” x 54” @ 300dpi. I shot it with a Nikon D810, Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II, Really Right Stuff TVC-34L tripod w/ leveling base & pano/gimbal head @ 70mm, f/4, ISO 2500, and 1/40 shutter. Processed with Lightroom, stitched & blended with PTGui Pro, and cropped with Photoshop (because Lightroom is limited to 512 megapixels).

A short video of the beavers can be seen here:
