This stitched panorama consists of four (4) vertical frames taken with the trusty Nikon 16-35/4 at 18mm. This was taken during a sneaky sunrise session at Whale Beach with Deb, Ron and Gerry (last year :)). Gerry is there on the left taking his own panorama sequence at the same time.

We had been taking shots facing out to sea with the sun in front and to the right of us. Very little cloud out over the ocean except for a bit of a band on the horizon. As such we didn’t expect much colourful cloud action in front of us.

Behind us however was a different story with these tentacles of clouds reaching over us from the north west. With the low sun over the horizon starting to hit those streaks of cloud, they began to light up in pinks and oranges. It was still only a few minutes till sunrise so this wasn’t going to last long. Just time enough to quickly turn around and see if any compositions could be made.



NIKON D750 + 16.0-35.0 mm f/4.0 @ 18 mm, 5 sec at f/13, ISO 100 x 4 Frames

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. Click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

This stitched panorama facing north along the beach with these cool rocks covered in green with the wash of the water stringing over them was the best I could hope for.
