This shot was made evening of Oct. 1, 2016 on Owl Creek Road east of Ridgway, CO. It had been a mostly overcast afternoon with thunderstorms and very little sunlight. There was a gap between the clouds and the horizon and we could see that about 15 minutes before sunset the sun would have an opportunity to shine under the clouds. We set up our cameras and waited, hoping that as the sun set there would be good light at sunset. Right on que, as the sun dropped below the clouds, Chimney Peak and Court House Peaks and the hillsides covered with Aspen and Scrub Oak in the peak of their fall colors exploded in the late afternoon light.

This original un-cropped version of this panorama consists of 68 individual 42 mega-pixel images shot with Sony A7Rii, at f-16, 1/8th of a second and ISO 100 using a 200mm lens. The 1:4 cropped image is:

1.12 Gigapixels
66784 x 16742 pixels
223" x 56" at 300 ppi
