Very hard to find a place suitable to gigapan from - but after walking round the whole thing (both rims - strenuous), we stopped in the middle of it (at Horseshoe Bend) for lunch. And afterwards made this! Exposure is of course a huge problem - very dark in the gorge, very bright where the limestone gets full sun - so a compromise on blowing some of the sky and just a touch of the gorge wall. View from the north end of Horseshoe Bend towards The Pinnacles - we'd been walking up there an hour earlier. With only the 70mm lens, this isn't going to win high resolution stakes, but you can see everything that is there...

Pentax Kx, DA* 70 f2.4, f9.
