Gone to See the World. Semester at Sea Spring 2016 Voyage on the MV World Odyssey. Day 14: Crossing the Pacific Ocean From Hawaii to Japan.
Pacific Ocean Sunrise Panorama viewed from the aft deck of the MV World Odyssey. Composite of 20 images taken with a Nikon 1 V3 camera and 70-300 mm VR lens (ISO 200, 82 mm, f/8, 1/250 sec). Raw images processed with Capture One Pro and the panorama created using AutoPano Giga Pro.
I never got tired of going out to see the sunrise and sunset during the voyage. Each day they were unique (weather permitting) and a new challenge to decide on how to best compose an image. I was more than willing to miss an extra hour or two of sleep just to see what the next day would bring. I also was always on the lookout for a ship passing in front of the disk of the sun at sunrise or sunset. That goal was a lot harder while crossing the Pacific Ocean than it was on previous Semester at Sea voyages in and around Europe.
