I finished this image on the fourth anniversary of the day we took it (no, that’s not bragging – just coincidence). But it is the third image we’ve introduced (see Introducing “Royal Terns” and Cedar Keys Lighthouse: A New Gigapan) from the fateful day that I ruined Nancy’s best camera and lensstory.
We finished our longest print ever, a gallery-wrapped 17″x96″x1½” image with experimental 45° beveled edges, just before we left on our last art festival trip of the seasonannounced. Its optimal illusion viewing distance (O.I.V.D.) is 74″. I will be describing our new bevels and explaining OIVD in posts coming soon.
This is another Gigapan. It uses nine rows of 41 photographs (369 total) shot with Nancy’s longest lens (and a 1.4x extender) to create a 230° field of view. You can read more about it (and play with a larger image) at Cedar Key By Sea.
