Well DONE!!! Without tripod?!? Fantastic!!! Cheers ;)))

Yeah it was about a mile hike from the car to that point and I didn't feel like lugging my heavy tripod - and I didn't plan to shoot a panorama! I used the focus points to line up with the horizon and as you can see the horizon is pretty much level so that made it easier. I was pleasantly surprised by how level the shots were so I didn't have to lose much to crop out the white space. It was the first time I had shot a 360 degree panorama too!

Thanks for your comments tommyj and Serge ALI and thanks for checking out my gallery.

Nicely done! It's a pain doing shots like this hand held, but dragging a tripod along isn't funny either. It's almost a form of art, especially when you must follow the horizon behind mountains or buildings. It's satisfying when successful and very little to crop.

I sat in that same spot for about an hour in aww. One of the most beautiful places I've ever been. Nice pic!

InstinctImages on September 14, 2013

Thank you Rondean! It really is spectacular and it changes constantly with the light. It would be easy to spend hours there shooting but what I really want to do is spend days down below driving those roads!

Cheers from San Diego CA
