On Wednesday of this week (9/16) I assisted a couple of my Hang Gliding friends launch from Kamehame Ridge above Waimanalo. Being a beautiful clear morning I decided to walk to a higher point along the ridge known as “Three Poles”. On days like this you’re rewarded for your effort with a view of the eastern most point of Oahu looking towards Molokai across the Molokai Channel.
Capturing this view in one shot is beyond the capability of my photo gear. Instead, using my wide angle lens 17-35 (effectively 25-52 on my Sony A700) I made a series of vertical shots. After importing the 23 shots into Lightroom for processing the individual exposures I ran them in the Photoshop CS4 merge to Panorama action.
