Castaway Cay (A Panorama)


The Disney Dream sits at the dock while people enjoy the Family Beach at Castaway Cay, the private Bahamas island of the Disney Cruise Line. Click on the photo to see it even larger.

I have always liked the view of the beach from across the bay at Castaway Cay, but it is difficult to get it in one photo. For this view, I took four photos with my camera, and then stitched them together in Photoshop to get this panoramic view. The only problem is that the final image was huge, around 12000 x 3000 pixels. The upside to that is that you can see lots and lots of detail in an image of that size, but the downside is that a large image like that is difficult to share. So I shrunk this one down a bit, although you can still see plenty of detail in the larger version by clicking above.

Yes, I know that most cell phones these days can take panorama photos, too. But for me they don’t give the same amount of detail or the same editing capabilities that I can get by using my camera. So that is why I went that route. Although by the time you see it on your monitor, you probably can’t tell too much difference. Oh well.

And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. - Ephesians 3:17-19
