This image was taken last week whilst on holiday in South Devon.

It was taken from the lighthouse at Start Point and shows the rugged coastline surrounding Start Bay (going from left to right you can see Hallsands, Beesands, Torcross, Slapton and ending with Dartmouth).

This part of South Devon is steeped in history. For example: Hallsands was a small fishing village which was destroyed by the sea at the beginning of the last century (allegedly as a result of dredging in the bay). Some of the remains of the original village can still be seen today.

Also, the beach at Slapton was the site of Operation Tiger - a practice run for the D-Day invasion of France in 1944. The practice run went horribly wrong when German torpedo boats appeared on the scene and killed 749 American Army and Navy personnel (less were killed during the actual D-Day invasion). A Sherman Tank was rescued from the sea and now stands at Torcross as a memorial to the men who lost their lives.

This panoramic was created using 7 separate photographs using autostitch and is the first time I have attempted anything like this!

All comments and critique greatfully received!

It's quite difficult to critique this because it's so small, but that's not your fault.

Well stitched (not a join in sight), and the clouds make interesting formations in the sky. Not much happening in the water though, so maybe moving the horizon further down (just slightly) would help.
