The result is a mini panorama. Yet by sticking the two overlapping pictures together (overlapped by about 1/3) it doesn't "feel" like a really wide angle shot. I think that is because when you use a lens with a wider field of view than 24mm to capture this scene with a single shot, you begin to get some perspective distortion.
This image was taken at 1:30 pm in the month of October. The sun was not as high as it would have been in the summer, but a lot of books would nevertheless say that mid-day is not a good time to take pictures because of harsh shadows. Well, I say forget about that rule. The best time to take pictures is when you have a camera in your hand.
