“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.
