Everytime one visits Galveston, a trip on the Bolivar Ferry is essential. As can readily be seen in this hand-held, 360-degree panorama, a simply splendid day can be had: www.panoramio.com/photo/31231777 Will open in a new tab or window
The SS Selma, Flagship of the Texas Army can been observed in this panorama. It is a World War I reinforced concrete tanker scuttled near a "marine battlefied" during the Civil War (www.crystalbeach.com/selma.htm Will open in a new tab or window).
This panorama is comprised of 29 photographs, which were taken with a Nikon D-70 using a Nikkor 28-80 f/3.3-5.6G lens and was stitched using the GigaPan Stitcher software.

    Obviously, there is lots to see and to do: www.panoramio.com/photo/31231777&n bsp;Will open in a new tab or window The main problem is taking apanorama when another object is close and is moving either in a different direction or at a different speed than what your speed and direction are. As you can see, there are even stitching errors on the coast, which is some distance away. For you, there is the Isle of Wight that you can go back and forth on a hovercraft, and if you do this, be sure and take some crackers and some enjoyable company ... although on a hovercraft, you may only be able to stay in cramped quarters or passenger area with your crackers and enjoyable company, which is not a bad thing :)

    Cool image with lots to see. It has made me wonder about the practicality of using a gigapan imager at sea. If the sea was relatively calm it should work I think. I wonder if anyone has tried it?
