Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk Panorama

The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk amusement park is exactly that. An amusement park right on the beach. The boardwalk has been in operation since 1907 and is one of the last seaside amusement parks in the United States.

This image is a 12 frame panorama that I shot from the beach. I didn’t have my tripod with me so did the pivot / swivel in the sand trying to stay as level as I could. Photoshop Elements did a great job of merging the images but at one point I thought my Mac was going to blow up. Once the merge was complete I ran the image through Topaz Clarity to give it some punch and that was it.

iPhone Friday – Santa Cruz Boardwalk

On our way down to Monterey Bay we stopped in Santa Cruz. We spend some time at the boardwalk amusement park. An amusement park right on the beach…who can ask for more. I’ll have some more pictures of this wonderful place next week.

Have a great weekend everyone.
