Today I went to "Fort Edam", part of the Defence line of Amsterdam ("Stelling van Amsterdam") late 1800's / early 1900's. A series of fortresses around Amsterdam where we could raise the water, making turning Amsterdam into an island surrounded by fortresses. This is the on in the north, at Edam. Click for more information.
I hovered at 120 meters and took 34 pictures (in a grid) to make this photo. It's cropped since the shape was a bit odd. And as you can see: the earth is a huge globe.

Thanks!
I stitched it in Lightroom, but also tried Hugin to also straighten the horizon. Too bad it also stretches out the bottom too much, resulting in a stranger image.
