Leaving the farm first thing this morning, we saw this.
Nerdy details: Panorama of 6 photos, each 50mm, 1/80 second, f/1.8, ISO 800, stitched together using Hugin.
But I guess 155mm of rain in a single day—honestly, in about 6 hours—and then another, what, 30mm in about half an hour a couple days later will do that.
Taken on a 20km bike ride on Canada Day.
The white lines in the image above show roughly where the water should be.
Before it got too hot today (34°C again, with a humidex of 38), I hopped on my bike. I took it easy—it was already about 25°C at 9:30 in the morning—and I took some photos of BU.
I also took a few more Brenizer-style panoramas, as practice. One didn’t turn out, but three seemed all right. (There’s some weirdness to the pole behind the deer statue, but I’m posting it anyways.)
As always: if you want prints of any of the photos, here or elsewhere on my site, let me know.
I’ve been reading lately about the Brenizer method (something I’ve apparently been doing already, without knowing that’s what it’s called).

The resulting panorama will have the depth-of-field (ie, background blur) of a single photo taken with a much, much wider lens.Continue reading “Brenizer bike”
