The location is about 10 miles from any paved road and we took ATV's to get to the location. This a 6 image panorama where I used a Really Right Stuff ballhead, a leveling base and a nodal slide. I added some dodging and contrast to the raw files then combined all 6 images into the panorama using Adobe Photoshop CS6. I left my filter holder at home so I had to hold the filters by hand which was challenging to keep from touching the camera during the 3 second exposure.
