Winter Sun on Mount Hood

Smaller version of Gigapan of Mount Hood (see it here in higher resolution) from along US Hwy 26. Orignal GigaPan was 1138 Megapixels (62100x18328) taken into Photoshop and cropped to it's current 919.2 MP size (54299×16929). Featured as the Image of the Week January 10, 2013.
Those with sharp eyes will see skiers on the Magic Mile and Palmer Runs at Timberline along with the more obvious structures and snow cat. There is also a hawk or eagle that ended up in a frame just about dead center on the mountain.
The shoot consisted of 180 images (20x9) from a Nikon D7000 with a Nikon 70-300vr on a GigaPan Pro. In Photoshop I blended in portions of two substitute frames to deal with clouds that snuck accross the scene on the original shoot. I did shoot brackets but did not use them for this stitch. Images were 0.002 second exposures at ƒ/11 with a 300mm zoom on a 1.5 crop sensor equating to 450mm 35mm equivalent. I used the larger blending region in Stitch.
