The view from the South end of Jordan Pond is one of the finest in Acadia National Park.  On the left, Penobscot and Sargent Mountains, Pemetic on the right, and at the far end the North and South Bubbles.

    This was taken from about 12 feet up on a Crain surveyor's pole with a pano bracket mounted on top. It is 20 shots (6 around up 55 degress, 8 around level, 6-around down 55) plus nadir with a Sony NEX-5n and Zenitar 16mm fisheye lens. The Crain pole has an excellent big level, so I can even shoot this pattern supporting the pole by hand, though in this case it was supported by a tripod.

    Well done! What did you use to raise the camera so high?

    This is an overview of 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.
