A storm had just passed, but the morning air was still cloudy and chilly.
The lighthouse stands at a point that served as an American lookout for any British ships during the Revolutionary War. Now the area serves as a park for recreation and includes an old indoor carousel. Warmer weather invites crowds, however, on this cold winter morning, no one was present.
In the initial direction of the panorama, seagulls can be seen (barely) standing on the rocks. To the left is Long Island Sound. To the right is New Haven Harbor. Downtown New Haven can be seen in the distance just to the left of the lighthouse.
This panorama was shot with a handheld (!) Sony DCR-VX1000 Digital Handycam with a 0.5x lens converter attached. The camera is turned 90 degrees for maximum vertical resolution. Sound recording was done entirely through the built-in microphone. The sound is unedited, but looped.
