This Gigapan was shot with a Nikon P90 at an observation point on a hill north of the Old Faithful visitor center. The Old Faithful Geyser erupted about 4:30 PM on September 23, 2010.
The wind was gusting pretty hard and it was hard to shoot while the camera was not moving. Some of the images of the crowd watching the geyser are blurry as a consequence. I was able to back the gigapan imager to the left top of the geyser and wait for it to erupt before starting the sequence again. I had seen it erupt about an hour before when I arrived at this spot. Other people who walked up to the observation point told me that it was supposed to erupt again within about a 10 minute time span close to 4:30 PM. I felt lucky to get this shot of Old Faithful erupting.
In the late 1990s and early 2000's we produced several 360 degree panoramas with surround sound of the Geysers and Hot springs close to Old Faithful.
Here is a link to a 360 degree panorama of Old Faithful with surround sounds of the crowd as they watched the eruption.
