Idyllwild Valley California May 2010
This was shot towards the end of a 9 mile hike that started at the Palm Springs Tram and ended with a cold beer in Idyllwild. We started out at about 8500 ft climbed to 9700 ft, this shot is from about 8880 ft ( GPS: 33 40.883N, 116 40.338W ) and from here we dropped to 5500ft in a hurry. This panoramic was shot vertically with 5 images combined into this composition using Photoshop. Keep an eye open for a video tutorial on this process.
Here is the shot in google maps. You can check out the hike also.
