Aerial 360 over Lee, Maine

431 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Lee, Maine

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.

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.
