Where I live in Australia. I was originally going to rotate this image the other way and have my house hanging off the top horizon to have a play on the stereotype that we in Australia are all upside down, but felt this was a stronger way to view the image. Now if you will excuse me, i'm just going to take my kangaroo into town to do some shopping......;-)

12 image 180 degree vertical panorama taken using a Canon 5D Mk II and Canon 20mm F/2.8 lens horizontally shooting. The airglow (green colour around the horizons) in this image is the strongest I have seen yet, and is caused by high energy particles interacting with natural oxygen in the upper atmosphere. West is down. South is left.

Too DAMN cool! 8-) A striking image for sure and that passing cloud at the top gives a nice touch of surrealism. Glad you went with this orientation :thumbsup:

And here I was trying to make some "I'm from down under babeh!" jokes. I even looked for the song on youtube, but it's blocked for some odd reason.

I guess you have a really flexible spine for bending like this.
