Valley of Fire Panoramic

I’m going really big today with a 6-shot panoramic from the Valley of Fire near Las Vegas.  The above image is seriously reduced – but clicking on it will allow you to view it in larger glory.  It is still scaled down – SmugMug stopped me at 48,000,000 pixels!

This was taken after dusk with long exposures.  In a few places, you can see star trails if you zoom in.  It shows about 150 degrees of view from my vantage point on the desert floor.  This place is so beautiful and unique that single images don’t do it justice.  The red color is real – but it is more red than usual since the picture was taken after dark.

Vital Stats: Canon 5D Mark II w/Canon 17-40 f/4L @ 40mm  ISO 200, f/11, 2.5 sec.   Stitching done with Photoshop CS4.
