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


In 1861, Joseph Battell remodeled a farmhouse into an inn (in distance left of center) which became a successful summer getaway and was incrementally enlarged during his lifetime. Today the inn and surrounding buildings are part of Middlebury College’s Bread Loaf Campus where the Bread Loaf School of English and Bread Loaf Writers' Conference take place each summer. During his life, Battell bought 40,000 acres in Vermont, and left much of it to Middlebury College in 1915. Most of this land was subsequently transferred to the Green Mountain National Forest and to the state of Vermont. The college still owns the land used for its Nordic and alpine ski areas and the Bread Loaf Campus.

Elevation: 440 m (1440 ft), Camera location from GPS: N43 57.199 W72 59.570

Notes: I used a Nikon D40 with a Nikkor 300mm f/4.5 AI-s lens at f/11, 1/400 second (lowest rows at 1/320 sec), ISO 200, NEF. 35mm equiv is 450mm, and field of view was set to 3.4 degrees. Focus was manually adjusted many times. Two second shutter delay was initiated by wireless remote. Lightroom was used to remove vignetting before outputting jpegs for stitching.
Abundant misalignment errors may be due to insufficient overlap among photos, and/or to manually adjusting the focus.
