The Berkeley Project was my first successful attempt at capturing large scaled vertical seamless panoramas. It took me about three years to finally master my technique with vertical photographs of this scale. This trip was in the heart of summer and everything was in full bloom. The weather was perfect for the entire week. I hiked all around Lake Anza in Tilden Regional Park. The lake was so refreshing and there were plenty of locals taking in the scenery while fishing and camping. Everyone was very nice and welcoming. To them, this was a weekly ordeal and it was nice to see a community of all ages come together to share one simple thing - NATURE. These prints are meant to be printed 8 feet tall.
