I captured this panorama of the Yellowstone River during a lunch stop along the river during my recent photography workshop in Yellowstone National Park. We stopped at a rest area near the river and we had a bit of extra time so I hiked down the river and setup on the river bank and captured this panorama. I was trying to showcase the large amount of grasses growing under the water so I used a polarizer to block much of the reflection on the water. I also wanted to get some reflection from the shore across the river so I compensated for that as well.
The Yellowstone River is 692 miles long and is a primary tributary of the Missouri River. The river is considered to be one of the greatest trout streams of the world. The lack of dams along the river provides for excellent trout habitat from high inside Yellowstone Park.
Yellowstone RiverThis image was taken with my Canon EOS 5DS using my Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 Lens set on 35mm. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/22, shutter speed at 1/6th of a second and the ISO set at 100. I used a sturdy tripod to create a solid foundation and my Kirk Long Rail to avoid Parallax Errors on the panorama. I captured seven images and stitched them together into one image using Lightroom. I finalized the image in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
