Description

The Alaskan village of Selawik is built on a wetland on the river near Selawik Lake. It is far removed from Kotzebue and the coast, and fuel for heating or generating electricity is very expensive here. Every gallon must be shipped in.

Here we see the windfarm that supplies some of Selawik's energy without the cost of burning fossil fuel. Wind is plentiful up here on the Arctic Circle, and these wind generators are usually moving, cranking out watts that came to town on the wind.

This panorama was photographed with a Nikon D80 and stitched with Autopano Pro.

    I think that the geocoding is fixed now. Thank you for letting me know.

    Alas, I have become an administrator myself, and I don't get out on adventures with my camera as much as I would like to.

    Sadly, Ella has not U/L a GigaPan since June, 2011. I fear that for whatever reason, she is not active anymore. She was one of my favorites when she was active during the time prior to the current administrators of this website.

    The geocoding of this shot seems to have gone awry. Can you fix please?
