It's not easy to make quantitative measurements in a GigaPan.

The spot I had originally targeted to shoot a GigaPan of Owens Lake.
... at Dolomite.
Wouldn't it be something to see the fully flooded lake and the reflections of these two ranges?
... by a gap in time.
... are why they call it Rainbow Canyon.
... big time!
... suggests different bedrock.
