Burning Man 2004

Burning Man 2004

I've written extensively elsewhere about Burning Man. Here are my panoramas from the 2004 Black Rock City

These are just the panoramas. Be sure to check out my regular sized photos of 2004 plus also:

2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998

Of course don't forget the 2003 Panoramas and all the other years.

Also check out about the Star Map and the Phone Booth.

I even have a stab at the never ending What is Burning Man? question.

In 2004 I got to borrow a cherry picker to shoot a wide and narrow pano from above the entrance to center camp. I also shot this at 10am, the first time I have done one in the morning instead of the afternoon. Fewer folks out in the morning and different light.

Detail view of whole city from cherry picker

This the giant shot, taken from the cherry picker high above the entrance to center camp on the promenade to the Man. I had never shot from the exact center of the city before, and chose this shot to show all of the Esplanade as well as most of center camp and the whole playa in one shot.

Things to note include the umbrella guy, the Temple of Stars visible through the Man and more. Taken with a 50mm lens on the D60.

View from 4:40 and Esplanade

A wide angle pano, shot under clouds, from the tower at the Embassy at 4:40 and Esplanade. The phone booth can be seen in the very bottom. My own camp is not very far away.

Sunset from 5:45 and M

A shot, at sunset, from the G-spot tower at about Mars and 5:45, behind center camp. I used this tower (in a slightly different location) last year.
