This is a High Mountain Lake located in the Island Park area in Idaho close to Yellowstone National Park. It is one of the Headwaters for the Henry's Fork of the Snake River and a famous fishing lake.
Surface elevation is 6472 feet (1973 m).

This Gigapan was taken from the top of Sawtell Peak, south of the Lake. Peak elevation is 9869 feet ( 3008 meters)

Shot with a Nikon D5000 and 300 mm lens.

Note! My batteries in the Gigapan Epic 100 ran out of juice halfway through shooting this scene. I replaced the batteries and continued shooting, however, I noticed some abberations in the middle part of the Gigapan when processing. I believe some images in this section are missing, but I have cleaned it up look "OK.". Has anyone taking Gigapans had a similar experience of losing the previous Gigapan shot location when changing batteries?

If I had known this might happen I should have started shooting the Gigapan again from the beginning. As it is I wish I had used a 200 mm lens to capture the mountain range above the lake.

    Ron, Thanks a lot for your comment and advice about how to correct for possible alignment problems after changing batteries. I tried to gauge the battery levels found I could usually shoot 5 gigapans in one day with one set of batteries. Somehow I misjudged on this set. (I found the new Eneloop rechargeables keep the charge longer and are more reliable than older types.)

    I've found that the Epic100 gearing does a pretty good job of holding the pitch (up/down position) of the camera during a battery change but the yaw (right/left position) is susceptible to movement while you're removing and replacing the batteries. When I change batteries I make sure I know what was centered in the last image taken and then recenter that before resuming.
