Twin Falls, on the GR-1NC walking track, is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in New Caledonia. This image was taken after a long spell of heavy rains and it was really pumping. 

This was a test of my new 7 camera SuperHero rig. I have 7 of these cute little GoPro cameras cuddled together on a rig that I can hang from a kite or hoist on a pole. Here it is hoisted on a telescopic carbon fibre pole (a fishing pole actually) about 5 metres above where I was standing. Turn them all on, hoist them up, presto - a sphere image. The whole rig weighs in at just under a kilogram and was easy to handle at the upper end of the 5 metre fishing pole as long as I didn't let it get too far out of vertical balance. 

The resulting images had to be processed to balance the light and color because the GoPro is a miserable little thing for color balance when you point it at different angles to the sun. Also it does not do well when the image is half shady and half sunny. But the final resolution and color isn't bad at all. 

Once I stiched one set of 7 any set of 7 images will have the exact same stitching characteristics. Which made it easy to set up a template in PTGui. Pop in the images, run the template and presto - a processed sphere. 

Now if the weather starts cooperating I'll try the SuperHero dangling from a Kite out over the lagoon.
