#1: Panoramic Shot from road

(visited by Shawn Fleming)

20-Mar-2007 -- It was the first day of spring and I was in Minneapolis taking my daughters dog to the University of Minnesota Veterinary Clinic for an appointment. I had some spare time and it was time for a couple of confluences.

I traveled through a lot of corn and farm country on my way and I easily found this confluence west of Oscar and Anna Johnson Park, a picnic area with beach and boat access on a dirt road between 2 muddy corn fields. The Google imagery is very good of this area. Unfortunately, reaching the confluence required hiking in the muddy field south of the road. After zeroing out, I had to put my boots in a couple of plastic bags to protect my car – it was extremely viscous, sticky mud. Picture #1 is a panoramic shot taken with a Kaidan 360 OneVR lens. Picture #2 looks north, Picture #3 looks east. Picture #4 looks south. Picture #5 looks west. Picture #6 shows my Garmin and Trimble GPS units debating on a present position. Picture #7 is a close up of the Trimble. Picture #8 shows the muddy conditions at the confluence. Picture #9 shows the raw circular image that software unwrapped to make picture #1 and, #10 is a QuickTime movie made from the same image.
