I really enjoy shooting 360-degree panoramas, and especially stitching them into little planets as you see here. It’s such a unique perspective of our world. This winter I bought a DJI Phantom 4 Pro quadcopter so I could shoot them from even greater heights. This is my home in Lee, Maine from 393ft above ground level on January 23, 2017, 14:52. To the northwest (about 1 o’clock on the circumference) you can see Mt. Katahdin—the highest peak in Maine—on the horizon 46 miles away, and to the south (between 7 and 7 o’clock) you can see Mt. Jefferson in my town 3.25 miles away. The windmills along Rollins Mountain and Dow Mountain can be seen to west (between 9 and 12 o’clock) reaching 3 to 9 miles away. Dwinal Flowage Wildlife Management Area, dedicated to my grandfather and Maine Game Warden, David Priest Sr., stretches to the northwest (3 to 4 o’clock).
Camera settings: 8.8mm, f/6.3, ISO 100, 5 exposures of 1/320 to 1/2000.
Stitching data: 4 rows of 9 images + 2 zenith images x 5 exposures for a total of 190 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.

VAST Prints are fine art photographic paper prints that arrive ready to be mounted and/or framed. They are created using the sharpest photographic printer in commercial use: a very rare specialty printer that formerly printed military surveillance imagery. Learn more
Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.
VAST Displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain a VAST Print sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden brace on the back causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style. Learn more
