I had the opportunity to go to the Enchanted Rock State Park with some of my photography friends to shoot an “enchanted sunset”. We scouted the area and decided to shoot the sunset from Moss Lake (which is really a big pond) and capture the image reflection on Moss Lake. Enchanted Rock is huge pink granite formation located approximately 17 miles north of Fredericksburg, Texas and 24 miles south of Llano, Texas. Enchanted Rock covers approximately 640 acres and rises approximately 425 feet above the surrounding terrain to elevation of 1,825 feet above sea level. It is the largest such pink granite formation in the United States. Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, a part of the Texas State Park System, includes 1,644 acres and was designated a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark in 1936.
This image was taken with my Sony A7R using my Sony FE 16-35mm f/4 set on 35 mm. The camera was set on Manual Mode with the aperture set at f/4, shutter speed at 1/30th of a second and the ISO set at 100. I took a total of six images to compose the panorama. I used PTGui software to compile the panorama and Photoshop to complete the processing.
