A vertical panorama stitched from 11 horizontal/landscape photographs taken on the same night at the Rae Lakes in Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park on a cold, cold October evening. This was my very first attempt at creating a composite panorama image of the Milky Way, and I hope to improve upon the formula in the future. With a view like this, I had to ditch the tent and slept under this blanket of stars that evening, despite the below-freezing temperatures! Well worth it.
