Two Oceans Aquarium panorama – Flickr pic of the day

image

This stunning panoramic picture of the Two Oceans Aquarium was taken by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member Mauro Pimentel aka violencia.visual.

Mauro says, “I took this shot in my first week in Cape Town. It’s a technique called panoramic photo. I created it by stitching three images together.

“I have so many photos from this trip, I think they’ll never end!” he adds.

With over 3 000 marine creatures on view – including sharks, turtles and penguins – the Two Oceans Aquarium is one of the finest aquariums in the world.

The I&J Predator Exhibit (seen in this image) holds 200-million litres of water, shoals of predatory fish, ragged-tooth sharks and a viewing window measuring 4m x 11m, and is the largest of the aquarium’s exhibits.

Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
