Garrett Evans and I snowshoed into Compass Pond on the Golden Road near Baxter State Park in Millinocket, Maine for some sunset photos. I shot this 1.5 gigapixel panorama of Mt. Katahdin and then captured some video and timelapse of the snow, wind, and moonrise. Click here to zoom in and pan around.
