Well it looks like with all the excitement of the EOS R and RF lenses not so many pictures are being posted on CR. On the Landscapes if it wasn't for Tony in Oct the last posting was in May !!

Anyway here's two of my latest panoramics, both taken in the Lake District. The first one is beside the River Brathay at sunrise, looking towards the iconic Langdale Pikes. 5DS + EF 35/2 IS, ISO 100, f/9, 1/50 Studio Manfrotto 058 tripod.

The second is looking towards the Langdale Pikes from Wrynose Pass, later in the morning. 5DS + Tamron 85/1.8, ISO 100, f/8, 1/160, Studio Manfrotto 058.

The Tamron 85/1.8 is a beautiful lens as long as you override the normal exposure by around + 2/3 stop

Many thanks bluediablo. The English Lake District is a beautiful landscape, especially when it doesn't like up to its nickname of The Rain District ! Apparently, going back billions of years to the beginning of the planet, when all the land masses were one, it was a massive volcano around 20 miles high. What we are left with now is the base that has has millennia of further geological activity and weathering. Locally the rocky outcrops like the ones in the picture are known as Pikes; there are many of them in this area called Langdale.

Resolution and output size on the 5DS are so crazily high, that despite massive air diffusion and shooting at f/8, you can see four people on the top of Side Pike ( the crag in the right middle ground) and even see the colour of their clothes. You can also see people on the top of the mountains in the distance - the Langdale Pikes, though here they are just little vertical sticks :)
