Acorn of Time

This is a panorama of Vancouver's Coal Harbour. I took this from Stanley Park one night and I wasn't alone. Not only is this a popular spot for photography, Vancouver has a lot of photographers. There were several other photographers out with their tripods composing their shots of this great city.

In this case I used three vertical eight-second exposures that I stitched together. I enjoy making panoramas with a full frame camera because of the amount of detail in the image. Whenever I print these I marvel at the smallest details.

One reason photography is so fun for me is because I get to go back and look at a scene in quiet contemplation. At the time there may be a lot going on and it's easy to miss things. But I tend to see more things later when looking at images. I'm like a chipmunk gathering acorns of time, holding them and then enjoying them later.

Anyway, I almost didn't take this photo because it's been done so many times before. But I'm glad I did, if for no other reason than I get to go back and enjoy the scene now.
