Photographer's Note

Here's a view of (almost) the whole Ría de Vigo. From the tip of the first island on the left to the deepest point there are 35km; I think this panoramic photo covers nearly 30km or so of water and land. It ranges from 7km in the widest side to 700m in the narrowest part (Rande).
The city in the foreground is Vigo; opposite are the towns of Cangas and Moaña; and even further, in the background, you can see some lights in the Ría de Pontevedra. I've already presented through my posts the large Cíes Islands, which protect the entrance to the estuary, and the smal and inhabitated Toralla Island with that tall building. On the extreme right, the mist and the lights let us guess the bridge which crosses the ría at the Strait of Rande. Vigo has "oficially" about 300.000 inhabitants, though the real population is closer to 500.000. You can't see all of it, however, as several parishes are still out of sight even from here.
This photo is a stitch of 7 shots taken from the Monte dos Pozos, an incredible viewpoint. I'm afraid the stitching isn't perfect, as this was rather "a test". If I don't give up, I might prepare a 22 photos stitch :-)
All the work was done in Photoshop, and it included curves and brightness trying to compensate the difference in light between the two extreme shots.
Don't forget to see the large size!

Thanks for watching and for your comments!
