At sea, away from the noise and stress of the city, the urban density of Beirut is striking. At the present rate of demolition and construction, the skyline is always changing.

Taken from a sailing boat on May 1st 2010 at 4.13 pm, this 2m-long panorama has been assembled from 13 photos, merged into a single image.

The challenge was to meet the necessary conditions of a clear day, calm sea and good light. This took many attempts.
