GigaPan Beta + Sony DSC-H7


The weather for the day of this pano was supposed to "heavy rain", so it was a big surprise to find myself in a quiet field with this spectacular view and wonderful weather.

In fact, I would go so far as to say it was an uplifting experience. Later on I slipped and ended up falling completely flat into six inches of liquid mud, and my reaction was to lie there and laugh out loud.

See www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=10384 for an alternative view.

This shot was taken was taken from here: www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=25860&snapshot_id=78557.
Bath is on the other side of the big hill on the horizon. The place I took this gigapan is just over the hill from here: www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=9802&snapshot_id=28947. If you look carefully you can see the radio masts are the same in both panos.

    There *is* a lot to see - it is one of my favourite gigapans for exactly that reason. I think it is much better than Pigs (www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id= 11099) but that has a much higher explore score. I suppose it is a case of monkey brains being wired to repsond to pictures of other monkeys. (I don't mean that in a derogatory way.)

    Wow, there is a lot to see in this one! Fantastic. I'll see if I can't snapshot something that has already been done twice.

    Thanks for the clarification Keith. It's very useful for me when people do this because I don't often have the time to go back to panos and get all the details exactly right.

    Your 'Strange building' is the water tower on the Downs and your third Severn Bridge is at the Welsh end of the old Severn Bridge on the M48 and crosses the river from Chepstow. I think it's the Wye.
