This is the view over Larkhall, an area in Bath, UK taken from the top of St. Saviour's church (www.stsaviours.org.uk / ). You can see the church from many places in bath e.g. tinyurl.com/ygkzgem /
Larkhall is an interesting area if for no other reason that many artists live here. There is an annual festival (www.larkhall-festival.org.uk / ) held to celebrate the strong sense of community here. I took this gigapan for the festival's web site but it has yet to be incorporated there.
Like most churches it is difficult to get to the top of and when you get there is there is no guarantee that you will be able to see anything or be able to set up your tripod. Here, for example, is what confronted me when I climbed out of the 90cm-tall access door at St. Saviour's: www.gigapan.org/gigapans/43345/
It was a real scramble to get to the top especially so since I knew the sun was going to go in, so by the time I took this shot I was in a bad mood: exhausted, rushed, flustered etc. You can just see the clouds coming in on the left on the horizon but I managed to get most of the scene in daylight.
Since I had gone to a lot of trouble to get to this location, I set up for a larger gigapan even though the sun had gone in. The larger shot is nowhere near as pretty as this one, but tone-mapping sort of saved the day see www.gigapan.org/gigapans/45188/
Many thanks to the Captain of the Bell Tower for looking after me on the day of the shoot and to the church for granting me access in the first place.
