Sunrise panorama from a bouy far out in the Atlantic

I've become strangely fascinated with looking at the panoramas taken by National Data Bouy center. It started one or two hurricanes ago, when i first noticed how the size of the waves reveals itslef with the tilt of the horizon in sections of the panorama.

Yesterday i traced the high seas as Hurricane Ida moved slowly through the gulf, peering at the images where twenty foot waves were being measured. Dark and stormy, yes, but the intimidating sheer cliffs that were computer generated in The Perfect Storm, no. It's still dark in the gulf this morning and the buoys with twenty foot waves have black strips.
