1,361,610,000,000,000 pixels–in one shot!


 

Taken back in June 2012.  This storm was over Connecticut, but was visible just West of the Hudson River in New York.  It was a true behemoth!  I couldn’t capture the entire image in my 35mm lens, so I grabbed a grid of HDR images of the storm system.

A fun fact to start the explanation of the title:  The D300 has a 12.3 megapixel sensor, so nine frames of 12.3 MP actually turns out to be 37.9 MP by 37.9 MP in size.

OR  *drumroll*

Now the photo.  I recommend clicking on it.
