Using the a nifty little tool in the newest version of Photoshop I pieced together a few of the photos I took when I was on Peaks Island. Click on any of the images to enlarge them. Blogger did shrink them a bit so if anyone wants a higher-res image, just let me know.

First up is a shot taken from the back of the car ferry, leaving Peaks Island and heading the the mainland. On the left is Little Diamond Island. Then Peaks Island and, finally, on the right, House Island. This is the scene I saw every day as I left Peaks Island to go to school in Portland. If you look closely, you can see my parent's house. It's covered in trees and hidden a bit, but it's right on the shore.

These two panoramas were taken on the back shore the day the edge of the hurricane was pummeling the island with awesome waves. Something about the mix of people on the rocks, people watching the waves, the surf of the ocean, and the island homes to the right make these two of my favorite images.

And finally, an image from my parents front yard. This is the view they wake up to every day and, sometimes, if they're lucky, they'll get a beautiful sunset in the evening. On of the nights I was there, I got lucky.

After stitching all of these photos together I'm really happy with the results and amazed that someone wrote a program that can pull a bunch of images into Photoshop and instantly, by itself, put them all together and make sense of them. Bravo, Photoshop man, bravo!
