An amazing failure

What not to do when taking panorama photos.

First, remember to hold your camera somewhat level, and take photos in a rectangle, no matter how many frames high, of the area you want to photograph. Do not taper like a triangle, leaving out a good swath of amazing cloud, like is cropped out of this image at the bottom.

Second, remember to figure out what the right settings are on manual...because aperture priority mode, while good, is not perfect. Every shot will be different.

That last one? That's the most important to get right. Otherwise you end up with this.
