My first gigapan panorama... Milford Harbor (at Milford Boat Works). The deep blue sky is deceptive, because the first bands of torrential rain from tropical storm Hanna are less than ten hours away. People are removing sailcovers and sails, taking away inflatable dinghies, and lashing movable objects to decks or stanchions in anticipation of 50-knot wind gusts predicted within 24 hours. A few folks are fishing from the nearby town dock.

A number of technical problems are evident in the photo. Very frustrating working with the Canon SD870 IS in manual mode - settings just wouldn't stay put. It's a terrific camera for typical point-and-shoot work, but it just isn't at its best in this application. Next time I'll use my Canon A720 IS (which has a much more capable manual mode - either with built-in firmware or with the open-source CHDK firmware).

A few of the masts appear to be 'split' - perhaps caused by wave or wind motion in between shots.
