One of the basic tenets in photography is that every image has to stand on its own merit – as the saying goes, “Nobody cares what you went through to make that photograph.” Still, I’m reasonably proud of the image below because of the circumstances in which it was made.
About the middle of September Marcia and I took the ferry over to Saltspring Island to take in the market and the Fall Fair, and we caught a late afternoon ferry to return. There was a storm brewing, so, fool that I am, rather than being safely ensconced in the cabin I was out on deck making photographs of the clouds. This image is a panorama stitched together from 19 images, shot handheld on a moving ferry. The 19 images were stitched together in Autopano Pro, and the final image was pushed around a bit in Lightroom. I trust you’ll enjoy it!
Now go out and make some photographs!
