This panorama was created by stitching 11 photographs together with 1/3 to 1/2 of overlap.
I was fortunate enough to have perfect conditions the night I took these photos. Taken around 3:00 AM, there was hardly a cloud in the sky. The town of Santa Rosa (on the right, below horizon) was just far enough away to add warm colors to the sky but not close enough to wash away the milky way with it's light pollution.
The green color (low to the horizon) is not from an aurora but conditions know as "air glow".
The panorama is nearly 180 degrees, facing directly east.
*** I highly recommend this photograph as a dye-infused aluminum print. Infused Aluminum prints are, by far, the most vibrant and luminescent way to showcase a photograph. My aluminum prints come with a "float box mount" that floats the image about an inch off the wall so there is no need for a mat & frame. Each print is a custom order that I personally inspect and sign before sending out. Please contact me ('Contact' page or [email protected]
) if interested or if you have any questions. ***
