Description

This is one of my favourite gigapans from Pembroke. I really like the contrast of the rural landscape and the oil and gas installations.

The eponymous town of Milford Haven (right) used to be a fishing port but there are no fish now.

    People who live in Bath do not know what "lit-up" is. Take a look at this GigaPan, which is very "lit-up" www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id= 27965 :) But then, if you like mackerel, you will not find any of them in these waters :(

    I was being pathetic about the fish. I'm sure the place does look amazing at night. The view from further up the coast (tinyurl.com/ks555e Will open in

    I have caught mackerel around here. Place looks amazing at night, as the refineries are all lit-up. Loads of forts too.

    This is a wonderful panorama of a seaside resort community and I admire Milford Haven because of the hills. A similar city, Galveston, Texas, has almost everything we see here except for the Milford Haven hills. Galveston is flat and the Great Hurricane of 1900 swept over the island and destroyed it. As recent as last year [2008] another storm, Hurricane Ike, also swept over Galveston and came very close to destroying it, but Galveston lives on, although still limping. Milford Haven may have suffered some difficulty too as described by Daniel Defoe (tinyurl.com/lp84o3 Will open in
a new tab or window), and the edited version is available through bookstores (tinyurl.com/ku6lcs Will open in
a new tab or window). A very powerful storm, a hurricane, swept over the southern part of England in 1703. Had it not been for this storm, which did severe damage, we would not have Robinson Crusoe or any other writings of Defoe to enjoy. He was a ruined man financially and in other ways too, but he was at the right spot at the right time to write about this storm, which propelled his career into that of great fame and fortune.
