A couple of days ago it was a misty, cold morning. Low clouds were drifting slowly over the Finnisterre Mountains across Astrolabe Bay from Madang. I got this panorama on the way to the office. Madang residents and those who have lived here will find this scene very familiar:

I did the next panorama when I was visiting Samarai Island along the way from Madang to Port Moresby on Miss Rankin:

I used Microsoft Photozoom to prepare the image. If you don’t have Microsoft Silverlight on your computer, you’ll need to download it – it should only take a short while.

When you have Silverlight installed, use your mouse (drag it around) to pan back and forth and up and down. Use your mouse wheel to zoom in and out. Try the “Full Screen View” – it’s terrific! You can see people on the dock.

Samarai is a fascinating place – full of historical and cultural treasures. I’ll be doing more posts on Samarai and I’m writing an article for Niugini Blue that will have more photos and some interesting background information.
