I was looking at Matt Kloskowski's Lightroom Killer Tips site to see what his "Inspirational Day" link would be and today it's a gallery spotlight of photographer Guy Edwardes who specializes in nature and landscape photography. I was particularly interested in his panoramic gallery, which is just phenomenal (though it's all pretty amazing).

As I was looking through the site, I was reminded of the panoramas of National Geographic photographer Bruce Dale. When I was preparing for my return home from Alaska last May, I picked up a special edition of National Geographic that was filled with digital photography tips by a number of their photographers out in the field. Inside was a tutorial on shooting great panos by Bruce Dale. Also included was a pull-out poster with a full size pano on one side and smaller versions of a dozen or so others on the reverse.

They're so crisp (or as Scott Kelby would say, "Technically Accurate Cibachrome Kelvin Shutter Hyperfocal At Refracted Polarization" or tantus saeta equina) and the colors are so vibrant and alive that you are just drawn into the scene.

Definitely take a look.
