9402 x 1439, 360 x 56.9 degrees, 28.5 percent of sphere. This is a full circle (360 degree) panorama, cylindrical projection created using Hugin. It is composed of 16 photos taken on 2011-09-15 between 18:56-7 near the southern most tip of Seattle's Lake Union. From Elliot Bay you can enter the locks , Lake Union and then Lake Washington, so it can be thought of a a midway point between the two larger bodies of water. You can see the day cruise boats on the left, the Center for Wooden Boats Museum of the City of Seattle on the right. Left of center you might recognize a green hill belonging to Gas Works Park at the far north end of Lake Union. If you look closely you might also see the Space Needle peeking out somewhere. Lake Union includes sea planes, marinas, house boats and ship repair(1, 2). On the left hand side of the lake is Queen Anne Hill which includes Kerry Park, another great place for taking panoramas.
