GigaPan w/Canon SD850


Garnets weathering out of a boulder of gneiss (Tolland County, CT).

Tried to get nice morning light on the vein containing the reddish garnets - was hard with the trees, though... the leaves were almost as bad as the clouds!

    More met. rocks on the way! I should have a handful of pans from the past weekend making their way online this week, plus a few more of the garnets. Living near the Appalachians does have its perks (and schists...)
