Magic Maïdo: Best Pentax Forums Photo of 2016 (Click for larger version)

First I would like to thank Pentax Forums for giving us the opportunity to participate in the best of 2016 photo contest.  I have already thanked those who commented on my photo but I'll do it again: THANK YOU!

The photo you see above is a panorama of 40 images (in a 4x10 grid) taken with the Pentax K-1 full-frame DSLR and the excellent Samyang 24mm F1.4.

Thank you all for your comments, nominations and votes. Some are funny; some are very flattering. Special thanks to Marc H. for his long analysis.

"The End" by bruno.cirou

I took this photo during an extraordinary journey in Namibia. This place is called "SOLITAIRE". There is only one lodge, one restaurant and one gas station.

My intention when I started this series of pictures was to shoot the Milky Way with a special foreground (the car). But the moon and some clouds were also present.

After the first shot I realized that the clouds formed some sort of a gloomy bird. My bad luck, moon + clouds, became a chance for a special photo. Even the flare and the halo "round off" the movement  of the "cloud bird."
