Superstition Mountain
Lens: Sigma 8-16 Camera: K5IIs Photo Location: Lost Dutchman State Park ISO: 80 Shutter Speed: Above 6s Aperture: F16 
Posted By: interested_observer, 10-01-2016, 04:51 PM

This is a landscape panorama of Superstition Mountain from the Lost Dutchman State Part at the gate, right at sunset. It's a stitch of 9 frames, each a stack of 5 bracketed images +/-2ev.

I needed some practice so I went out late yesterday afternoon and went shooting. This is an hours drive from the house, so it was relatively close and the clouds looked like they would provide an interesting shot. Going to Flagstaff on Monday to see the fall colors..

That's a really impressive result! Did you move around, or just rotate the camera on your tripod?

Just a single location, and rotated about 180 from edge to edge. It's running 10000 by 3600 and for 16mm the detail is really impressive.

Having said that, my wife took a look at it and said - well it's the desert, what's so special about it - with a New York accent.

Tell your wife I think it's awesome.

Sure, it's got nothing on Goethals and Verrazano at sunrise.

During the rush hour.
