I took this 165 megapixel panoramic from the Visitor's Center during a 1-day trip to the Colorado Springs area. Garden of the Gods is a free park to visit. On the right you can see the famous "kissing camels" in the sandstone formation. In the background of this photo is Pike's Peak which stands at over 14,100'.

The weather wasn't perfect. The humidity was high. But, it was a night with a new moon and I needed to get out and shoot. I was in Myrtle Beach, SC for work - something that I do often. I looked over the moon phase calendar, checked the cloud cover and around midnight I headed out in hopes of catching at least some part of the sky. The light pollution from the city behind me didn't make this capture any easier.
