I don’t know what I did to cause this pano to be so blurry when viewed full screen on a large monitor, but it is what it is.
Every photo is it’s own challenge, and this one had many! Just as I was almost set up in front of the ocean for the pano shots, the weather degenerated quickly into an all out down pour with no end in sight. I started packing it up while getting drenched. Half way back to the car, it stopped. I hesitated. Back I trod.
Now, while shooting, people and a dog come into the scene. O well, as I said, it is what it is. Then the ocean surf became particularly aggressive, coming up to the camera/tripod.
I just started shooting the pano as quickly as possible. (I don’t think I even thought about focus at all!) Next I noticed one of the tripod legs had sunk into the sand and the careful balance needed for the perfect pano was to be hopeless.
I doubted the stitching software would even be able to generate the pano file. Amazingly, it did it and extremely fast!!
But the scene was too gorgeous not to share. So even though the pano lacks sharp focus, enjoy it!
