This shot is a 9 image HDR Vertical Panorama (Vertorama). Shooting a vertical panorama is a unique way to show more detail for tall or very wide scenes.
To do this, put your camera on a tripod (or very steady handheld) and level and shoot the very bottom part of your foreground in landscape/horizontal orientation. If you wanted to include flowers near your feet for example, then start there. Then shoot the next scene a bit higher, overlapping 30% of the image shot before it, and so on. Then combine all of your images in Lightroom's Photomerge "Panorama" tab. If it comes out funky like it sometimes happens, Photoshop is a nice backup plan.
It's a fun way to try a unique method of taking photos and can add a little flavor to your shoots. This method works well for architecture especially churches, tall trees, cityscapes etc...
