The ability to stitch panoramic images is definitely a huge asset when it comes to storm photography. Luckily, today, this no longer has to be done by hand, but can be nearly seamlessly merged in programs like Photoshop CS5 and even free programs like Microsoft ICE. There was just no way to capture all of this storm in one image. Glad I took this panorama when I did, because by the next time we had a chance to stop, the golden light was almost completely gone.
I'll get a full account for this chase up later on my Tumblr page under the 2011 Accounts section
With that being said... enjoy this ridiculous storm panorama!
Please tell me what you think!
