This is yet another stichted image from our trip to the island of São Miguel, which is part of the Azores. In the background you can see the city of Povoação, which at this day was nearly completly blocked due to the celebration (and its preparation) of the Feast of Corpus Christi. The picture was taken from one of the many picnic areas to be found everywhere. I think the road leading into the picture and the flowers in the foreground make the image work quite nicely.

This image again was taken using a Canon EOS 7D, which has a resolution of a about 18 megapixels. The combination with a Canon TS-E 24m f/3.5L II lens and its shifting to the left and to the right ensured, that I could sticht together an image with a resolution of about 49.7 megapixels in the end. Therefore, it should work quite well as a large format print. The lens was tilted down about 1 degree to bring the foreground in focus as well. A Lee Polarizer and two Lee GND filters were attached to the lens to ensure a balanced exposure.


Technical Details: Canon EOS 7D, TS-E24mm f/3.5L II, f/8.0, 0.04 sec (1/25), ISO 100, 0 EV, 24 mm
