It's not easy to find a good vantage point to GigaPan the flooding on the Mississippi River. Vicksburg offers one of the few unobstructed bluff-top viewing sites along the lower river. The day was not ideal - partly cloudy - as can bee seen in the patchiness of the exposure on the right half of the image. The batteries that I spent the night before recharging didn't serve me well either - first dying in the camera just before the pan reached the bridge spans (thus the change in zoom) and finally the batteries in the GigaPan died waiting for clouds to pass, truncating the last 60 degrees or so of a planned 180 degree image. Clearly I need more practice before I master this device...

This GigaPan is a restitch of www.gigapan.org/gigapans/78281
As I prepared to upload this restitch I've just discovered that GigaPan photographer EdP shot a whole series of GigaPans in the Vicksburg area both before and after I passed thru: www.gigapan.org/users/panoramman/gigapans Among his GigaPans is one that captures what I was trying to get in this shot: www.gigapan.org/gigapans/78441 I wish I had realized at the time - it would have been nice to meet up and chat about GigaPanning.
