Sculptured Rocks geological formation in Groton, New Hampshire

This was a fun shot, I was standing in 2.5 feet of water (deceiving from the pano) with my tripod sunk down into the water.

hi kirk,

nice shot. Did you get yourself wet?

Yes, mid thigh level :001_smile: My shorts were soaked on the bottom.

As I stepped into the pool, I didn't realize how deep it was, and my foot started to slip downwards on the rock.

I had my Canon 40D with Sigma 8mm fisheye on my right hand, and my Manfrotto tripod in my left.

My backpack had my other camera gear (because I wasn't originally planning on going into the stream), which contained a 70-300mm telephoto, 18-55mm lens, WFT-E3A wireless grip for the 40D)

My pockets had a remote started/keys for my truck, and my remote trigger for my 40D.

As I started to slide, I realized I had way too much camera gear on me to go under!

I'll know for next time to just bring what I need.

I added 2 more shots and replaced the flash pano viewer with a new one, krpano.

Nice shots... the brightness range could do with using TUFuze or the like.
Not sure why you did not clone out the wet socks on the rock. :biggrin:

You know, I looked at those socks (they weren't mine) and thought "nasty socks" but didn't even think to grab a stick and flick them into the woods so they didn't taint my image.

I guess I'll run a little Photoshop cloning over them, and tidy up the rocks :001_smile:

Okay, that's a really nice shot. And excellent picture quality too.
Feels like im actually standing there, only i was smart enough to bring a pair of water proof boots or something.
