    Aruba 360 panoramic photo

    Mrs. 44 and I ventured out to the natural pool. Along the way, she took a series of photos to cover an entire 360 degree view. The link to the photo is posted on my blog under the heading ARUBA SIGHTS, because the photo itself is too large a file to put here.

    So where was this photo taken? Well, as I said, we were headed out to the Natural Pool in "Old 918," which would be my Chevrolet Silverado. The road to the natural pool gets gradually worse until you come to a sort of "last stop" for regular vehicles. Of course, we proceeded up the worst hill as Old 918 never shies from a challenge. (It climbed that hill like a roll through the mall parking lot.) Now we were basically one ridge away from Aruba's eastern edge; the windy side that is. We stopped for a look around. My wife hopped out with her camera and walked about 50 yards away. As she started taking photos, another truck, the red one you see twice in the photo series, started climbing the hill. Naturally, he stopped to chat with a fellow pickup aficionado.

    Back to the photo. As it loads, the extreme left of the photo would be looking south by slightly west. Scrolling to the right you gradually look west, then west by north, then north, then north by east, east, and finally a piece of south by east before turning west again. I think so, anyway. But check out that landscape! Hardscrabble rocks and cactus, Hooiberg (the haystack like mini-mountain), distant sea, tiny hotels far off, the WEB plant making smoke, it's all there.

    For you camera nutz, Mrs. 44 used her Nikon D1X and some magic software to put the images together. Don't ask me how.

    Bon dia from Aruba.

    quite nice i must say.....

    btw, i managed to successfully sell your book to a couple at the airport. i saw them looking at it and speaking aloud that "it's a book of aruba" - i promptly made my towards them and raved about the book and told them that it was a must read. they did purchase it.
