Do many people use the freeway exit at the tunnel in the middle of the Bay Bridge? It leads to former Naval Base "Treasure Island", which if nothing else has spectacular views of San Francisco Bay.

Seems the Navy left, and before its planned re-development what's left has seen better days. I guess it's unique?

The opening north-westward view shows a run down military accommodation block with 6 "wings" off a central stair and service way. Pan down to see a second similar accommodation block at close quarters!

Precision is: High. Pinpoints the exact spot.

4 GoPro HERO2 cameras, with a wooden camera cradle/rig to hold the cameras in exactly the correct position is triggered by 4 gentWIRE camera syncronisers. Suspended below a Rokakku kite.

This technique produces two hemispheres, and a different workflow in PTGui from the classic ground pano technique. This results in extra effort BUT impossible angles!

See the rig, how Kite Aerial Photography is achieved, and the workflow.
