Stacyville, Maine, March 12, 2017
Chris Lawrence and I traveled up to Stacyville, Maine to shoot a panorama of the full moon setting over Mt. Katahdin this weekend. The weather didn’t cooperate with a haze over the mountain that made sharp photos of the moon impossible at sunrise, but after breakfast the clouds burned off as it started to warm up above 0°F and the brutal wind died down. We discovered this farm with a beautiful view while driving around and the landowner gave us permission to climb the hill behind his barn for a unique view of the mountain.
Camera settings: 200mm, f/13, ISO 64, 1/160.
Stitching data: 1 rows of 5 images.
Equipment used: Nikon D810, Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II, Really Right Stuff TVC-34L tripod & pano/gimbal head, and lots of hand warmers and clothing layers! Stitched and edited with Lightroom.
This is a 1.2 gigapixel panorama of the barn. The full size is 53,804 x 21,522px or 18.68 x 7.47 ft @ 240dpi when printed. Click here to see all of these panoramas in higher resolution. The gigapan is the second image in the thumbnails at the top left of the page.
