Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk III, 12-100 f/4 @21mm, 1/2500 sec., f/4.5, ISO:200. Ten exposures to create this panorama.

On the 12th of this month I climbed up through Golden Canyon off Badwater Road in Death Valley and took the Badlands Loop Trail that climbs further still up toward Zabriskie Point. I stopped just before the intersection of the Zabriskie Point Trail and took the shots that created this panorama. I would have entered this in the Landscape Gallery were it not for the two hikers sitting on an overlook. Just in case you can't spot the two hikers I'll include A) a larger version of this shot and, B) a crop from a much larger version (not presented here) so you can see the two.

Wonderful shot, Mike. I don't think the hikers disqualify this for Landscapes, being so tiny, but it's just as nice to put this here. Love the vastness....and actually, the hikers give great perspective. You sure go some amazing places!

As Cindy says, this could easily go in Landscapes, Mike - the two tiny 'ant' people don't disqualify it at all and you need the eyes of a hawk to even see them!  Wonderful view in your larger version, and the crop makes a nice shot in its own right for T&C.  :)
