From the site: "Hamilton Pool Preserve is a historic swimming hole which was designated a preserve by the Travis County Commissioner's Court in 1990. Located 3/4 mile upstream from its confluence with the Pedernales River, Hamilton Creek spills out over limestone outcroppings to create a 50 foot waterfall as it plunges into the head of a steep box canyon. The waterfall never completely dries up, but in dry times it does slow to a trickle. However, the pool's water level stays pretty constant, even during periods of drought."

    Not a stitching problem. Hamilton Pool is a collapsed underground river cavern and has a pretty massive overhang. I will admit that the perspective is distorted because I was much closer to the back wall of the cavern than the front. The sky is much larger than it appears in this gigapan. I also took a small, hand shot, gigapan and posted it at www.panoramio.com/photo/26548865&n bsp;Will open in a new tab or window since it was too small to upload here.

    It's hard to understand what's happening here. Is there a stitching problem or is there an enormous overhang?
