Photo of the Month: January

This a composite of 6 x 21 megapixel images stitched together in Photoshop. It was taken just before sunrise at Wilmington SA. I woke up at about 6am so it was a great rush to get my gear together, jump a couple of fences and capture this amazing sunrise. The complete sphere of the sky was ablaze with colour, the only way I could think of to do it justice was to take a panorama, as the light was constantly changing I quickly set up my tripod and took these 6 images in portrait mode as quickly as possible. This would have to be the most spectacular sunrise I have see. The full size image is about 75 mega-pixels.
