The photo above is a 6-image panorama shot atop Lost Horse Mine Mountain in Joshua Tree National Park.  An assist goes to Kevin for giving me a bubble level for Christmas that screws into my Gitzo tripod.  I shot  a full 360 degrees with 51 photos- 17 sets of 3 in case I wanted to use HDR.  The HDR didn’t add anything in the mid-afternoon cloudless sky.  The six shots above are the most interesting part of the sequence.
