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.

Dit is een overzicht van 新喀里多尼亚

新喀里多尼亚是离澳大利亚和新西兰最近的南太平洋岛屿。该岛是法国领地且官方语言是法语,尽管如此,其文化却丰富多彩,揉合了美拉尼西亚、欧洲、波利尼西亚、越南、中国、印尼等国的风情。这里有一个多山的大岛,称为大地岛 (Grande Terre),和6个较小的岛屿——洛亚蒂三岛 (Loyalty Islands)、贝莱普群岛 (Belep) 和松树岛 (Isle of Pines)。

整个群岛人口极为稀少,有大片的荒野。这里有数百公里长的徒步小径、随处可见的露营营地、超过42个公园和保护区、清澈透明的河流和莹莹闪光的瀑布。约三分之一的人口居住在首府努美阿。镍的开采是该国最主要的工业,也是维持其高标准生活的主要经济来源。大地岛四周环绕着世界第二大珊瑚礁,此珊瑚礁形成的泻湖是世界上最大的,也是受保护的泻湖。该泻湖于2008年被列为世界遗产,面积达24000平方公里,是品种丰富的鱼类和无脊椎动物栖息之地。

对于刚上岛的游客而言,最引人注目的是这里鲜艳夺目的色彩。努美阿以其完备的酒店、度假酒店、餐馆设施和丰富多彩的活动欢迎游客的到来。
