Description

This tiny island is of course the site of the headquarters of the well-known International Rescue, but a little-known geographical feature of the Dorset Coast in the UK. The beach is one of the most fossiliferous coastal sites in England. If you have sharp eyes you may* just be able to make out cmlbath fossil-hunting at the base of the cliff in the distance.

You can see the bay to the West (left) here: tinyurl.com/lnx6gh Will open in a new tab or window and you can see where the gigapan was taken here: tinyurl.com/nd6kkp Will open in a new tab or window. For more gigapans of this area try searching on 'Charmouth' and/or 'fossils'. Here is a good one by Richard Edmonds to get you started: tinyurl.com/naaxog Will open in a new tab or window.

Ack! I just noticed a horrible stitching error on the horizon ... Oh well, perhaps I will re-do it. I shot it bracketed and the sky has lots of texture so I could have some fun doing a little tone-mapping at the same time.

FWIW This image is stitched with what is - in my opinion - the most over-priced and unreliable stitching software available - Autopano Giga 3.0.2. True it has made a better job of stitching on this occasion than the gigapan stitcher (tinyurl.com/ntlgce Will open in a new tab or window) but at least gigapan don't have the audacity to charge you the laughable price of €199 plus 20% tax for the privilege. And in any case gigapan stitching errors are highly entertaining. And the devs are nice people and say 'thanks' when you go to the trouble of posting them a DVD containing images that don't stitch.

Recently APG failed to render a 9 by 5! And we are talking *multiband* here!! (Fume.)

I need to go and have a little lie-down now. I'm not sure what the emoticon is for "brain explodes" but consider it to be this: {}==:-0

* "May" implies "may not".
