Nikkor 300mm f/4.5 AI-s, Nikon...


White pine, red oak, and paper birch are common in this view today because two centuries of timber removal has reduced the success of the original late successional dominants. According to the "witness trees" noted in the original lot surveys in Salisbury, the most common trees in the late 18th century were American beech, sugar maple, and eastern hemlock . In this scene, most of the green tree foliage is of white pine, and the rich brown foliage includes red oak and white oak. The brightest yellow leaves are aspen, but leaves of some red maple, sugar maple, and paper birch are also yellow.

    Notes: I used a Nikon D40 with a Nikkor 300mm f/4.5 AI-s lens at f/11, 1/250 second, ISO 200, NEF. 35mm equiv is 450mm. Two second shutter delay was initiated by wireless remote. Field of view set to 3.1 degrees. Lightroom was used to remove vignetting and increase exposure, saturation, and vibrance before outputting jpegs for stitching. This panorama is a repeat of gigapan.org/gigapans/28882/ which was taken in summer with a poorer lens.
