Default Panorama of my home-town

Found this from this summer. It's a panoramic view over my home town, Hunnebostrand.
This is shot from Höga Berg (High Mountain), the largest mountain-piece in Hunnebostrand, watching outwards the harbour towards Skagerak.
It's made out of 19 shots, covering 180 degrees, that's why the horizon is crooked and I couldn't get it straight without messing it up, sorry.
Hope you like it.

Ahhh - How nice!

I should have known you are from the Bohuslän-coast, because you knew all about lobster-fishing when we discussed it in October.

Hunnebostrand, isn't this just at the northern end of Sotekanalen? We used to sail from Oslo down the Swedish coast many years, in fact, every summer as long as we had our sailboat. Grebbestad, Fjällbacka, Hamburgsund, Smøgen, Lysekil, Mollösund, etc. etc. We used to turn around and headet back north after visting Marstrand. That was our normal 2-weeks of sailing holydays then. 10 days down - 4 days home!

Nice panorama-shot of a wonderful coast during the summer-months! The view is terriffic. I wish we had such a mountain to climb here in Fredrikstad, to picture the whole of the town, but unfortunately the are only hills surrounding Fredrikstad.

Thank you for sharing, Acapulco!

Acapulco,

Oh, beautiful, rich picture from Hunnebostrand. Clean air that day. Wonderful sky. A pearl

Straightened the horizon. What do you think. Does it mess up? You are the only one to know

You have to know that I as a "Scandinavia-Lover" am always waiting for such shots from you, Torgny or Walter

Your'e standing at a very nice vantage point to overlook the whole village/town - therefore you captured it really great, love the perspective/view. What I especially like are the beautiful colors of the roofs and the sea!

Nicely done, Acapulco

Here you go my friend. I hope you don't mind the edit. What an amazing looking place. I could only hope one day of visiting the other side of the world, stopping here for a moment.

That's a beautiful shot!

With the summer sun it it didn't look European to me at all. You could have said it's South Pacific and I would have believed you.

Really nice Acapulco! Stiching the whole village into one picture and at the same time giving a very good impression on what one can expect when arriving on a sunny summers afternoon deserves credit.
