The following seven photos were stitched together into a panorama of Mt Eden crater, using Hugin and finishing-up touches in the GIMP.
Sky tower is on the horison on the left-third of the photo, with Rangitoto Island a little to the right of the middle.
Where I now live is on 'The Shore' over the other side of the harbour and slightly to the left of Sky Tower. I grew up on the lower slopes of Mt Eden.

This is a very popular tourist destination. Parking to the right of this photo for cars and buses.

I had to take this shot at an angle, and try to straighten it in GIMP with the perspective tool. I need to go again and get a shot from above if possible.
