Where eagles dare

By paolodefaveri  
The canyon of the Verdon river is nothing but a must-visit place for anyone living in EU and for anyone planning to visit France from abroad. It's 60 kms long and 700-800 meters deep, with huge vertical sandstone and limestone walls and fantastic spots at every corner.

I took this picture at dawn a couple of weeks ago, from atop the highest cliff of the canyon, at about 1300 meters of altitude. This is a stitch of 7 vertical takes, so don't forget to check out the larger size for much better details.
Your c&c are as always highly appreciated, thanks in advance for your time.

Details: Eos 50D, Tokina ATX-Pro 12-24 f4, GND 8x + GND 4x, tripod.

You are so right large is a must! It is first class and a sure winner! Wonderful composition , tonal range is fabulous and the detail quite incredible. I love the contrasts in texture and light between the sky and the rock faces.Have shortlisted this and added to favourites
