GigaPan with Canon SX 100 IS


Fortress Louisbourg was built by the French, starting in 1719, to guard their colony on the island of Cape Breton (then called Ile Royale). It was twice captured by the British sieges in 1745 and 1758.

The fortress and part of the associated town was restored in the 1960s to its 1744 state. The site has a large staff and includes farm animals, a bakery, and some buildings decorated with period furniture. It's a focal point of Acadian pride and a common destination for school field trips.

The gigapan was taken perched on the wall of the south side of the fortress, across from the barracks and clock tower. We took it a few minutes after the cannon was fired in a demonstration.
