- Description: This scene represents one of the main reasons I became interested in Panorama Photography. The format gives one the ability to include so much more detail that can be captured in a traditional rectangular image. To make things interesting, I decided to attach a 10-stop Neutral Density filter to my lens. As well as capturing a sweeping panorama scene, I also wanted to record light and color as vibrant and clean as possible, while envisioning some ethereal or surreal effect. Using this filter added the challenge of completing every shot, before the sunset light was gone. That meant being able to frame and focus just the first shot in the series, as my viewfinder was completely dark after that. For each of the other 13 shots, I very carefully panned and adjusted my tripod head, so each capture would include enough overlap, and be perfectly level.
- Gear: Nikon D7000, Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 ATX-Pro Lens, Gitzo Series 2 Tripod, Vanguard Ballhead, B+W 110 ND Filter
