Recent Skies -- The Emerald City

To capture a large part of the sky we took lots of single shots and combined them into panoramas. Yes, some cameras, including ours, will create them for you automatically. We still like doing it manually with some software. The software tries really hard to put a 3-dimensional scene into a 2-dimensional image and presents you with a result that may look strange. Not filling in the edges or cropping ... well, some like it and some don't. How about you?

  8. I like the last one best, but what a lovely skyline view. Pretty skies, too. Every morning I hope for sunshine here- it's so dreary otherwise.
