I took this VAST photo of fog and sunset over Bar Harbor from the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park on June 6, 2016, 7:50 PM. It is stitched from 28 photos with Photoshop (it was too large for Lightroom to stitch). The sun was setting fast and the fog was moving fast too, so I shot a single row at 140mm, f/8, ISO 64, 1/20 sec. I didn’t have time for a second row or longer focal length before the sun had set behind a bank of clouds and the beautiful light disappeared. I chose f/8 and focused on the ridge where the hikers were because I liked the town and fog being slightly out of focus in the distance compared to the sharp outline of the ridge catching the last of the sun’s golden glow.
Camera settings: 140mm, f/8, ISO 64, 1/25.
Stitching data: 28 images in 1 row covering 155° vertical field of view, cropped to a 3:1 ratio for printing.
Equipment used: Nikon D810, Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 VR II, and Really Right Stuff TVC-34L tripod w/ leveling base & BH-55 ballhead. Edited with Lightroom. Stitched with Photoshop.
This 219-megapixel VAST photo is one of the highest definition photographs ever created. It has a resolution equivalent to 106 HDTVs.

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
