This gigapan was taken from the over look atop High Point Mountain as a storm approached from the west. High Point Mountain (1300 feet) is the southern-most peak in the Bull Run Mountains north of Thoroughfare Gap. This rocky exposure is visible from the surrounding lowlands, and I have been told was named "mother lead coat" by George Washington.
The rocks on which the tripod is standing are from the Cambrian Weverton formation of the Chilhowee group. This ridge stands higher the surrounding landscape due to the hard quartzite of the Weverton Formation. This location marks the eastern limb of the Blue Ridge Anticlinorium. From this view you can see westward across the core of the anticline to the ridges in the distance, which are the western limb of the massive anticlinal structure.
View of the Camera is looking roughly west.
