This is a second Gigapan I shot and the Geyser erupted as I was shooting the photos on the right side. Over many years I have visited this Geyser and have never seen it erupt before. It was quite exhilerating realizing I had the camera aimed at the right spots at the right time.
I uploaded a first version of this Gigapan last night, but had some help cleaning up stitching errors today. So I am uploading it again to show some more erupting water detail that was visible in the original photos, but were softened by the stitching process visible in the first version. After exporting the Tiff file I imported original photo files with Photoshop in an attempt to retain more of this detail. I have posted some additonal photos of the erupttion on my Picasa Web page.
Note that this Gigapan can be viewed in Google Earth using the link (KML) available on the botton right of the image. The Panoramio layer in Google Earth provides many great photos of this geyser.
Also of note. By mistake I did not notice that the F. Stop was set on 5.6 for the original photos, but I would ordinarily have set it at F. 16 or higher. Consequently the foreground of the geyser and the trees on the hillside in the background are not as sharply focused as I would like.
