I know this one was posted before, but... This is by far one of the coolest Casa Grande shots I've seen in a while (possibly because the scene looks so familiar :) so here's for another look!

Here are a couple of other shots I liked from this year's posts:

And one from a few years back also snapped by James:

Thanks for the nod Richard, I'll crop them up and send later today..
I'd rather you spend some time combining a few of your panos to be nominated. :) I know there were a couple of Dodson Trail and OML panos that would look great together.

In the meantime, I'll nominate this combo I hacked together of a couple of Casa Grande summit panos from http://www.bigbendchat.com/portal/forum/big-bend-photographs/high-resolution-zoomable-panoramas/

An old Ay Chi pic that I would love to see on any calendar:

Here are some shots I took while car camping.

That is an incredible sunset and shot! Makes me wish I was there when it was taken.

Last chance to nominate any pictures for next year's calendar! I'll accept nominations until tomorrow morning when I lock up this topic.

In the meantime, here's another collage combo of some Dodson Trail panos by Lance:
