GigaPan Beta + Sony DSC-H7


This is a famous location for finding fossils on the Dorset coast. Some really big and important finds were made in the late 1800s. The sea is constantly washing more of the cliff down onto the beach providing new opportunities for that once-in-a-lifetime find.

I had hoped to get the focus good enough for geologists to look at individual rocks in the cliff, but as you can see, I didn't quite nail it.

The next bay to the East (right) at Seatown is here: tinyurl.com/m3f8ap Will open in a new tab or window.
Interestingly, the fossil-bearing strata in this shot continue for 100km across the West Country to emerge near Bristol. Here in fact: www.gigapan.org/gigapans/54012/

    Marvelous panorama of a geological structure that many here in the States would love to have in our back yard. More geology than what I can identify. Another great GigaPan!
