Panorama | Sunbathing the Maine way at West Quoddy Head

Click on the above image for a full-size panorama. I'm doing some freelance work that requires the use of a PC, and while perusing its hard drive today, I found some old photos of West Quoddy Head State Park near Lubec, Maine. This was before I really knew what I was doing in taking photos for panoramas. They were snapped without a tripod and were horizontal; the ideal is to stitch together vertical images for a proper panorama. During a visit to Maine in August last year, my family visited the park, the easternmost point in the United States. More photos are here. In this image, New Brunswick, Canada's Campobello Island, perhaps best known as the summer retreat of Franklin D. Roosevelt, is to the left, and a hiking trail is to the right. In the rocks is a park-goer enjoying the sunshine fully clothed, as it was sort of chilly that day. And atop the rocks is my father, who, camera in hand, is scanning the horizon of the cool Atlantic Ocean.

That sounds like an awesome insult. I'll use that soon. "You're a big fat Quoddy Head!!" :-P
