Well, What Sea?

Spent the weekend with the Mrs. along the Pacific Coast where we could drink in the waves. Here I also used my newly created multi-row panorama rig to stitch together 6 photos taken starting at 6:09 PM until 6:11. Sunset was at 5:01, so there was still plenty of sunset glow in the sky.


There are more shots in this series, but this portion is 3 wide and two high. The clouds obscure the Milky Way in Sagittarius, but if you look closely you can make out part of the familiar Teapot Asterism.


Pretty soon I will have an article on the website about my < $150 multi-row panorama rig built with parts from


The most challenging part of this shot was dealing with the low fog and the MANY, MANY cars people and headlights. I had to shoot 3 of the shots twice each to deal with that.


All shots were f/2.0, ISO 1600, 10 seconds, 24mm.


"Well, What Sea?" is a misreading of the Spanish name for the place where this was taken. "Asilomar" means "Asylum at the sea", but if you parse it differently "Así lo mar" it translates to "Well, What Sea?" which I thought was just whimsical enough to make a good title.
