Bold Coast, Cutler, Maine, Pano 8
USA

“Why SO serious?!” This was the last day myself, Chris Georgia, Garrett Evans, Jared Blash, and Mike Taylor tented on our epic adventure along Maine’s Bold Coast. Here we are getting the latest weather report over my DeLorme InReach SE satellite communicator because we had no cell phone service and grimly contemplating on whether to pack up and hike out or stick out another night and risk the weather. No one wanted to go home yet as we had other places we still wanted to shoot, but no one wanted to pack up wet tents either, and memory cards needed to be backed up, batteries charged, and more food and water supplies needed from the vehicles after a few days in the remote wilderness. In the end we decided to bug out during good weather, take the long hike back to the trucks, drive around to other locations, sit down for some hot food and internet access, and just sleep in the cramped vehicles to wait out the weather. We made a wise choice as it rained off and on for the next 32 hours, and occasionally it was a good downpour too.

Shooting data: Nikon D700 & 14-24mm f/2.8 @ 14mm, f/8, ISO 200, and 5 exposures spaced 1.3 EV apart from 1/800 to 1/20 sec. in 15 positions, 75 photos total, for a 55 megapixel sphere.

Prints and more photos available through my galleries.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
