Sunday Pond

I spent two nights a couple weeks apart at Sunday Pond in Millinocket, Maine recently shooting panoramas and timelapses of Mt. Katahdin reflecting in the pond. What a beautiful place!

I took these photos of the bridge over the Penobscot River on the Access Road in Lincoln, Maine at night (1 to 2hrs after sunset). Most of them are 1 to 3 minute exposures taken with the Promote Control.

For quite a while I have wanted to take a spherical panorama timelapse. This sky full of star trails consists of 41 stitched panoramas in a timelapse.

Milky Way Panoramas

Here are some interactive spherical panoramas I took last July of the Milky Way.

A panorama I took of Old Town Fuel & Fiber was presented to Representative Mike Michaud as a Lifetime Achievement Award last week in Washington, D.C.

A few photographers from a local photography group got together to shoot downtown Bangor at night. Here are some of the images I got.

Stargazing

Matthew Parks and I went out to shoot the Geminid meteor shower together last month. Here is a spherical panorama of us stargazing in the field.

Matthew Parks and I went out to shoot the Geminid meteor shower together last month near the corner where Brewer, Eddington, and Holden meet.

A few nights ago I set out to shoot a time lapse video of the Leonid meteor shower and the Milky Way because it was a dark, moonless night at the peak of the meteor shower. I setup the Nikon D700 and my favorite 14-24mm f/2.8 lens with a Promote Control, freshly charged batteries, large memory card, and wrapped it all up nice with hand warmers, heavy wool scarfs, and blankets to keep the batteries warm and prevent frost on the lens.
