Cherry Blossom Tunnel – Bonn, Germany – Limited Edition Local 13 Series

| 36

We were out with a bunch of photographers +Lars Vonderschmitt +Elmar Schrage +Marcus Schommler +Alessio Fangano and a couple more last weekend shooting the amazing cherry blossom trees in Bonn. It only lasts 2-3 weeks and this was captured right at their peak.

To avoid distortion in the image but still be able to capture the tunnel, I created four horizontal exposures and merged those into a vertical image. This is a so-called "vertorama" – a vertical panorama . Due to the stacking of the images, the photo has nasty 82 Megapixel and accounts for 2.5 GB on my hard drive! The amount of detail in this shot is incredible and certainly made for creating big-ass prints .

Otherwise no combination of multiple images. All of these shots were single exposures. I also switched locations frequently and found this one to be working the best. Least amount of cars, people and photographers.

For a better resolution and to purchase prints visit my website here:

Nikon D800
+Sigma CorpofAmerica f/1.4 @f/8
Exposures: 35sec
+Induro AT-114
