Aerial 360 over Abol Bridge

303 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Millinocket, Maine

Winters in northern Maine have a stark beauty all their own. The fresh snow contrasting with the cold water under overcast skies lends an almost monochromatic look to the landscape.

Abol Bridge, pictured in this VAST photo, spans the West Branch of the Penboscot River on the Golden Road near Millinocket, Maine and is part of the Appalachian Trail. Mt. Katahdin, the tallest peak in Maine, is covered in clouds to the north (about 6 o’clock around the circumference).

Clear aerial photography requires stable air to capture images sharp enough for a VAST photo. I waited out several days of bitter cold and wind for a calm enough morning to launch my drone and create this 360-degree panorama. Using a stereographic projection and pointing straight down to the ground in post-production digitally maps the sphere into a ball and gives the appearance of a little planet floating in clouds.

Camera settings: 8.8mm, f/5.6, ISO 100, 1/60.

Stitching data: 4 rows of 9 images + 2 zenith images for a total of 38 images.

Equipment used: DJI Phantom 4 Pro, iPhone 7 Plus, and Litchi. RAW conversion from DNG to 16-bit TIFF via Lightroom, aligned with PTGui, and manually blended in Photoshop.

Photographic print

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology. Learn more.

Acrylic glass display

Our acrylic glass displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain one of our photographic prints sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden mounting brace on the rear causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style.
