I traveled to Kalgoolie about 10 hours from my home town last weekend for my sons sports Championships. Kalgoolie is a mining town since last century. The mine (they call the super pit is the second biggest mine in the southern hemisphere) It is hard to grasp just how big this thing is but if you look really closely you will see the trucks that are enormous up close.It is3.8 kilometers long, 1.35km wide and go down to a depth of more than 500m.

These shots are what I stitched together









The previousphoto's were shot with the kit lens on the Rebel, this shot is with the 90-300 lens on full zoom. These trucks are huge.



Heres the pano
