Katahdin Stream

This is a small side waterfall along Katahdin Stream Falls on Hunt Trail, the last leg of the Appalachian Trail, in Baxter State Park, Maine. This is actually a panorama stitched from 160 original images. I used the in-camera multiple exposure feature and combined ten 2.5 second exposures for a simulated exposure of 25 seconds. I repeated this 16 times for each frame of the panorama. The stitched image is 32 x 47 inches, after cropping to taste.

Camera settings: 70mm, f/16, ISO 64, 10 exposures of 2.5 seconds for a simulated 25 second shutter.

Stitching data: 4 rows of 4 images x 10 exposures for a total of 160 images.

Equipment used: Nikon D850, Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, and Really Right Stuff TVC-34L tripod & pano/gimbal head. In-camera multiple exposure, RAW conversion via Lightroom, aligned via PTGui, and manually blended via masks in Photoshop.
