Panoramic photo of a San Pedro beach when a brief storm is coming in

I used the panorama feature on my iPhone 4S to capture the storm coming in.
So a little backstory on that image. My wife Becky, who is 6 months pregnant, fell off her bike while we were riding back to Cocotal Inn the afternoon of our first day of vacation. She sprained her ankle badly, but a local retired couple (Anne and David French, been there for 10 months) came upon Becky while I was getting help at nearby Hotel Caribe. Long story short we became fast friends with this couple, who we ended up spending a good portion of the next week with as they showed us around town and their favorite places to eat, etc. They were giving us a ride to the southern part of the island - near the Boat Yard I think - and we saw the storm coming in. I hopped off the cart and took the panoramic shot that included our cart and the sunny skies on the left, and the dark and ominous clouds over the ocean on the right. About 10 minutes later it hit us while we were driving and it was an awesome downpour! The photo sums up our vacation - making new friends, exploring the island on the golf cart, and the beautiful landscape and constantly changing weather.
