Selfportrait of the photographer in the Devrent valley in Cappadocia. Normally the shadows of the photographer and his tripod must not be visible in a panoramic image. They are a sign of missing professionality. But sometimes its nicer not to follow the rules.

What an absolutely amazing place! They say panographers are like  vampires: we have no shadow and we don't appear in mirrors...so you dared to expose yourself to de sun! :D

Thank you for your comments.
You are absolutely right Henry. As a panographer I'm like a vampire. But in a moment of weakness I took off my camouflage cape and exposed my pale body to the sun, burnt a black shadow into the rock and regreted it immediately. Sunburnt after an exposure time of 1/125! You are a veterinary surgeon, do you know how to treat a sunburnt vampire? At least I learnt it's better to continue my life as an invisible shadow-sucking panorama-vampire...
