How I Got This Shot: I had just left Graveyard Fields, heading south on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The sun was starting to set, and I wanted to get a good sunset shot. I drove until I found an overlook that gave me a great view for a panorama. I didn’t have much time when I arrived, so I shot handheld with the IS turned on. Never be afraid to underexpose your images, because detail can be recovered in post processing. The image was created stitching 5 images together in Adobe Lightroom.
