Gone to See Florida 2017/2018 Road Trip. Day 3: Sunset at Fort De Soto Park.

I went to the beach at Fort De Soto park for a lasagna dinner with my parents, brother, and aunt. The park is located in St. Petersburg at the southern tip of Pinellas County separating Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Just after the sun went below the horizon, the clouds started developing some intense pink and orange pastel colors. The first image is a composite of seven images taken with a Leica T camera and 11-23 mm wide-angle zoom lens stitched together with AutoPano Giga Pro in a Fish-Eye view. The second image is a composite of fifteen images stitched together in a Little-Planet view.
