Sunset in the Badlands.top
I signed up for the Sunset Tour:
This unique evening tour is designed especially for photographers and people looking for a quieter nature experience. Taking advantage of the cooler temperatures and wonderful evening light you will be guided into some of the secret areas of the natural preserve and be given ample time to get the perfect shot, or to simply soak up the natural beauty of the badlands. Locations may include Valley of the Gold, Valley of the Castles, and Valley of the Moon. Tips and tricks for photographing the badlands will be provided.
The tips were pretty basic — beginner level stuff — and of course there was the challenge of trying to shoot in a crowd (but it was still better than areas outside the Natural Reserve!).
This High Dynamic Range 360° panorama was stitched from 72 bracketed photographs with PRGUI Pro, tone-mapped with Photomatix, and touched up in Aperture.
