Right before sunset at the Grand Canyon, AZ.

I was so lucky to get this considering my camera battery ran out and the replacement battery had enough juice left to complete the final picture. Also the SD card had maybe 5 more pictures to spare. To top it off the moment the picture was done the tour bus was leaving the location. Talk about cutting it close. Did I mention it was windy as heck too?

I cleaned this image up and added a row of pictures on the bottom. www.gigapan.org/gigapans/57117/

    Hi Undercam, I geocoded it with the data given to me by the GPS that was attached to the camera. It doesn't look like the right place on the map, but that's what it gave me.

    Hi Nathan! Nice image. Could you geocode it to the approximate place where it was taken? I'm guessing that it was somewhere on the South Rim above the Unkar Delta, but it would be good to know for sure. Check out some of the GigaPans I shot during an 18 day raftinng trip last April by searching Grand Canyon GigaView.
