Let's say I am posting this for the sake of keeping the thread going...

This 4 shot vertical panorama taken just below the crest of Bush Mountain in Guadalupe Mountain National Park.

A lot of regrets about this one, as it could have been really been pretty neat if I had take another column of shots to the right. I wasn't thinking real good - pretty exhausted getting here (7 miles, 45 Lb pack - half water, and almost 3000' total climb). The salt flats below, a little part visible in the upper left, are over 5000' below the peak, and the temperature differential creates wind gusts which literally knocked me over, which is why I didn't get too close the edge. And while the evening light is nice, I couldn't shoot to the left because of the sun. Had I been there when the sun was higher I could have had another column to the left with the desert below. Well, live and learn.

Nick
