Panoramas Nos. 3 & 4
I found this view when I drove my daughter up
to Morton Plant Hospital. Because of Covid, I wasn't
allowed in with her, and it was pretty hot sitting out in the
parking lot. So I decided to look for a cooler spot with some
shade. I discovered another lot close by and it was right on
the waterfront. The view of the Intracoastal was amazing,
so I decided to come back another time, when it was dark.
I asked my friend, Richard, if he would go with me,
and he drove me up and acted as my bodyguard
while I shot. Turns out it was a popular spot for the
420 crowd, so I appreciated his company even more.
My camera was tethered to my mac, so I could
see the results instantly, and clearly, on a bigger screen.
Later, I stitched the images together in Photoshop. Voila,
a panorama that would be 14 feet wide, and 4 feet tall,
if I were to print it. These were also shot as an HDR.

My first attempt at a panorama in 2010 was done from the
observation tower at Boca Ciega Millennium Park in Seminole. There
were some pelicans in the center that added visual interest; you can
see them when you zoom in. I did print this one as an experiment,
and it hung in the business office at the Florida Aquarium, along with
a bunch of my 16x20's. I left it with one of the employees when I left
my position there.

My next panorama was at Lake Seminole Park. I haven't
