Storm Clearing Over South Pond and Blue Mtn.

series of 8 second exposures about 20 minutes after sunset to create this 4 image pano.


There were several ideas I had in mind, unfortunately the weather, and conditions collaborated to put them all into one photo, making the result not what I wanted. I was hoping for lots of wind to create a pastel like long exposure where the water was creamy and the trees extremely soft or a glass like surface where everything was clear and sharp.


What I got was some waves/motion up in the front of the photo and the trees, and some glassy water towards the island in the center. Suffice to say I wasn't completely happy.


Canon G3, tripod mounted, 2 second self timer, f/5.6, hyperfocal distance, ISO 50.
