The Quarry at Halibut Point

posted by giacomo




Ever since I saw the way this shot came out, I’ve decided I want to get into panoramas more and more. This past summer when I visited the Northeast with Tucker and Andrew, I had a few opportunities to put my tripod down and do some work, and so far I’m liking what I’ve been able to put together. This one comes from Halibut Point, a really nice little state park I visited with a friend in Rockport, Mass. I started the shot with what I thought was plenty of time but it turns out that the sun was just on the cusp of setting as I started. However, I was pleased with the result, as the changing light ended up creating a slow changing gradient from orange to blue. Anyways, enough with the words. Take a look for yourself:

I started shooting just as the sun began to set, on the left side of the image, so by the time I got all the way over to the right side (probably only 5 minutes later) everything was blue. Also I’m still conflicted about the two people who made it into the image near the bunker. My friend insists they may in fact be the ‘punctum’ of the image, and therefore absolutely completely critical.
