It's August on the International Dateline.

Welcome to Photo of the Day. The POTD thread was started by iGary in May, 2006 and converted to a monthly thread in November 2007 by Arn. POTD is one of the most popular picture groups on MacRumors, often exceeding 500 posts and 20,000 views per month.

Photo of the Day is intended to be a showcase for your best pictures. There is no limit to your gear, just your imagination. P&S and film cameras are welcome along with DSLRs. There are no themes like the Fortnightly Challenge and Weekly Contest, and no winners (or losers) either.

iPhone 4s Panorama Pix from Toronto Island July 2012

I was able to stitch a clean almost seamless horizon photo with an iPhone app called Panorama (the one with the trademark logo) in a matter of seconds with no editing involved. I wish i had my monopod with me but I held the camera as steady as I could and it seems to have worked well. I took this pict in July 2012 from Toronto Island. It was the first time I had ever been to Toronto so I was all wide eyed and feeling the YUM of the city. It was also the first time I had taken my iPhone to a new city for a touristy hike. I'll try to post a few more panoramas from that trip in this thread. Oh I notice that the pict looks rather small in this thread if you want to see it a larger scale you can download it or view it on my Pinterest Toronto Island Pict link.

Woot! First one :)..

I've been trying to post a least one pic a month,

Here's mine for this month, not the most exciting subject but I know, but i kind of liked it

Wheel barrow by Shaun Wilkinson Photography, on Flickr
Nice color palette and rustic charm. It evokes that good feeling of knowing it's time to relax after a hard day's work.

There you go making me want to visit New Zealand again.

On Saturday my church ordained and installed a new associate pastor.

Nice repetition of patterns. This one would probably sell well as a stock photo.

I call this Tiki Man. Look at the rock carefully and you will see the face!!! I found him on a hike I was doing in Alberta, Canada.
