View east from the amazing rift zone in Iceland, also a rather historic place as the launch of a democratic government here before 1000 AD.

Ironically, I was setting up the rig, and someone asked, "Is that a Gigapan?" -- the first time someone knew the device. He and his friends had been at Carnegie Mellon Uiversity (where the Gigapan concept was developed) and were packing one of their own.

Small world?

    I am part of a group of Carnegie Mellon Architecture Students and we were just in Iceland and took a gigapan to Thingvellir on May 26, you can check out the images as well! It is a small world :)

    Hi Alan. Ben here - 1/2 of the other Iceland gigapan duo. Nice to see the Thingvellir photo after being there at the same time! You can check out the photos Ian and I took on my profile page. And check back because I'm borrowing the device for the next couple of months and plan on going a bit crazy here in the middle of the dark winter.

    Hahahahaha.... I likely lost; I am miffed I seem to have forgotten to lock in my exposure. They were not packing theirs, so there was no violence.

    If I ever ran into someone else packing a GigaPan, there would have to be an immediate duel. If not to the death, then at least to see whom can wield it to the best photographic effect.
