This GigaPan illustrates the Yellowstone River eroding down through a series of sediments and lava flows that have filled its valley in the last two million years. The prominent columnar jointed lava flows across the canyon are about 2 million years old and sandwich a layer of probable glacial till.

The light was great when I started this GigaPan and lasted until about halfway through shooting it. At that point a cloud came in and blocked out the sunlight. After pausing the panorama for about a half an hour waiting for the return of the sun and a couple of brief but futile restarts I finally adjusted the camera settings to reflect the cloudy conditions and resumed. The results aren't as spectacular as if I'd had good sunlight throughout, but not as bad as they could've been. Someday I'll have to get back here on a nice sunny day and shoot a GigaPan that does the view justice.
