Photographers Comment

A big Thank You to everybody who voted for my image, I am very proud of this result! My name is Florian Breuer, and I am from South Africa. This is a 230 degree view of the Quiver Tree Forest near Keetmanshoop, Namibia. The orange glow is actually light pollution. I stitched 12 exposures using Hugin. Postprocessing: curves adjustments. The colours result from the choice of white balance and increased contrast. Canon 40D, Tokina 11-16mm, 30s, f/2.8, ISO 3200.
