Photographer's Note

This panorama was stitched from 3 originals, which was tricky as I was not using a tripod, so matching became a bit of a chore.

Akamas (Greek: Ακάμας), is a promontory and cape at the northwest extremity of Cyprus with an area of 230 square kilometres. Due to the mountainous nature of the peninsula there are no roads; furthermore some roads marked on Cypriot road maps of the area are not tarmaced. We had walked a long way on a hot, dusty track to reach this spot. As the area is therefore relatively inaccessible, there is a large diversity of flora and fauna there. This however looks like it may be threatened by tourist development and the planned A7 motorway between Polis and Paphos; organisations such as the Green Party of Cyprus, Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth are taking action to protect the area.
