312 Images. Stilbaai is on the southern coast of South Africa. The picture needed the timing of many variables. First to get a panoramic shot from the sea towards the land I had to wait for low tide as the beach is normally too narrow to move back enough for a wide angle shot.( See this gigapan taken in the opposite direction. www.gigapan.com/gigapans/148404 ) I then had limited time for the setup and taking of the gigapan as the tide started to turn. Next the position of the sun, from behind the camera, for optimum illumination. Then minimum or no clouds. And finally not to many people close to the gigapan as that would mean many "half people". On this day everything fell into place after 2 previous failures.
