Self Portrait from Rattlesnake Ledge in Washington by Michael Matti
It was a beautiful day out and I didn't have anything on the schedule on this particular day so I decided to take a spontaneous hike up Rattlesnake Ledge. This popular hike just east of Seattle, Washington offers stunning views of the surrounding area. Since it wasn't a very busy day for this hike, which is rare, I decided to attempt a really wide shot and self portrait. This image is the result of 5 vertical - 3 shot images stitched together. I did have to wait around for over an hour to get it without people running around, but I didn't mind the wait with a view like this.
