Shot of the Day #43

Kings Canyon was beautiful – I made it there at around sunset, greeted by the 270m sandstone chasms – brilliantly lit up by the dropping sun, which produced a golden fringe around the canyon forest. Heading back from the main lookout I side tracked into the river bed a little and this pool of water was perfectly placed for me to capture the reflections and canyon walls! I had to do a free-hand panorama to include both the reflections and orange sandstone, I later stitched the nineteen photographs together in Photoshop, creating this vertical panorama!
