The camera was mounted on a Kaiden Kiwi panorama adapter on a Manfrotto 190XDB tripod with a Bushman Monopole extension lifting the camera to about three metres.
A sky shot and six shots, tilted slightly below the horizontal, were taken. These were at 60° intervals. A ground shot was also taken. Each "shot" consisted of three bracketed exposures from +2 to -2 stops. (The exposures were at shutter speeds: 1/250, 1/100, 1/40 all at an aperture of f/16.)
A total of 27 separate images were combined using Hugin (which in turn invokes Nona, Enfuse and Enblend) in order to achieve this High Dynamic Range type result.
