Asheville, NC Panorama from Buncombe County Courthouse Roof at Sunset


Asheville, NC Panorama from Buncombe County Courthouse Roof at Sunset

I scouted the location earlier in the day, so I knew this was the only location I could shoot from. This panorama was much more difficult to execute than I expected. We had to crawl through an office to get to the roof. The parapet was nearly 6 feet tall, the wind was blowing, and I was forced to position the tripod precariously.

With little to no traffic on the streets in downtown Asheville on a Wednesday night, there were few car headlights streaking.

Thanks to Terry Davis of DP & Associates Photography for the help and the images!
