This is a panoramic image that I took on January 20, 2023.

Feature Image Details


This is a panorama image that I took right from the parking lot. It’s about 30 minutes from where I live. All you had to do was be there.

I watch cloud formations and when they are promising I try to be somewhere that makes sense. It really helps to know your local area well. 

Due to panoramic stitching, the resultant file is enormous, about 800 megabytes, enough to blow up to billboard size. 

I could have used my Canon 24-105MM F4 L Lens but was mainly zooming in. Of the sequences I took, I like this one the best, on the shorter side of the lens that I did use. 

One other photographer was there. He was at least serious enough to have a tripod. But he was not serious enough to be paying attention. He was chatting with me as I took this set and missed the best light.
