Following a bitterly cold night, I trudged up the hillside to catch the pre dawn light. As the sun approached the horizon, the earth shadow became apparent, creating a contrast between the blue shadow and the warm colours of the impending sunrise. The setting moon was perfectly placed to provide a point of interest in the panoramic composition. My method of producing high resolution images like this is to take a number of individual images, each capturing a different segment of the scene, and then stitching them together.
