Nikon D80's


The rusty buildings of this abandoned whaling community lie on the south shore of North Bay in Prince Olav Harbour. In 1911, this 18th-19th Century sealing center became a whaling center under the last whaling lease granted by the Falkland Islands. At first Prince Olav Harbour's whaling was run from the Restitution, a floating whaling factory. From the sinking of the Restitution in 1916 until the closing of the station in 1931, whaling operations were shore-based. You might want to look at the separate panorama of the station's machinery which was taken at the west end of the bay.

This is a strange place with thousands of seals wandering among the rusty buildings and swimming around metal and wood debris in the water.

This panorama was stitched from 22 images captured with a hand-held Nikon D80 in a moving zodiac on choppy water. I was happily surprised when Autopano Pro managed to stitch it this well.
