One-Year Ago (17-January-2016) — Pacific Ocean

Gone to See the World. Semester at Sea Spring 2016 Voyage on the MV World Odyssey. Day 12: Crossing the Pacific Ocean.

Sunrise over the Pacific Ocean including a series of four images of the solar disk. The closest I’ve been catching the “Green Flash” at sunrise. Images taken with a Nikon N1 V3 camera and 70-300 mm VR lens (ISO 200, 300 mm, f/5.6, 1/500 sec). Field of View equivalent to an 810 mm lens on a 35 mm sensor camera.
