On July 3, 2012, A small forest fire burning in the Teton National Forest about 70-miles soutwest of Cody, Wyoming, USA, erupted into a major blaze. The smoke drifted into the Cody area by late afternoon, obscuring the sun. About an hour before sunset, I stepped out to the edge of the hill behind my house and set up my tripod, pan head, and camera to sweep this panorama as the sun started to appear out of the cloud of smoke. The mountain on the left is Rattlesnake Mountain. Moon Crest Peak and Pat O'Hara Mountain are below and to the right of the sun, while Heart Mountain dominates the horizon on the right third of the image. The silhouetted ridge directly below the sun is called Cedar Ridge.
This is about a 90-degree panorama from due west to almost north. It's made from 19 vertical frames, taken on a Canon EOS Rebel T2i with an EF70-200mm f/4L USM lens set at 70mm, mounted on a Bogen tripod with a Manfrotto panoramic head. All exposures were taken in manual mode, 1/400 second at f/7.1, ISO 100; stitched in Hugin 2011.4.0 and cropped and adjusted for contrast in PS CS4. The final 70.03 MB image was saved as a TIFF.
