Sunset at Turnagain Arm

South of Anchorage, Alaska, USA

A view of the sunset at Turnagain Arm taken from Seward Highway, just south of Anchorage, Alaska, USA. A friend of mine and I were driving back towards Anchorage when we saw this view from the road. We immediately stopped the car, got out, and started taking photographs of the sun setting over the water and mountains. The friend that was with me is a fellow photographer, so he didn't mind taking the time out of our drive at all.


I really enjoy capturing high resolution panoramas. Commonly, I'll also make use of high dynamic range techniques when shooting panoramas. When shooting panoramas, I am most likely doing so while shooting landscapes. However, in some cases, I combine images simply to make larger resolution photographs. I have even used it while doing macro photography in a few cases.

Here are some more panoramas that I have taken.
