Sunrise over Mt. Sonder

I decide to post panoramic shots this week.

I've been taking panoramas for a while now but of late I've really been working on the composition of a single frame which is where it all starts. So after working so much on compsoition I would really like to take what I've incorporated into my single frame shots into my panoramics. The vision and thought need to compose a pano is largly the same but you have to think about how the frames will stitch together as well.

This shot was taken with my 70-200 f2.8L at 70mm I really like using this lens for panoramics because when the images is stitched together it had far less corner distortion than shooting wide with my 17-40 f4.0L.
