A Walk with Panoramic View
I was reading old posts on Antonia's blog while I was sick, and she mentioned this cool program called Autostitch. It automatically takes your adjacent photos and stitches them together without leaving a messy blur where they overlap.
As soon as I felt a bit better, I took a walk with the camera along the path I keep mowed and took some overlapping pictures.
Here is our son walking south ahead of me, very self-conscious.
If you turn left just past the tree, you come to our fire pit. My husband decided the fire ring was too big and made it smaller, but the extra rocks haven't all been dragged away yet.
This is looking back at the house. No, we can't see the house when we camp out in our back yard.
If you take the path to the left of the fire pit and turn back, this is what you see.
And if you follow that path to the top of the rise and look back again, here is my mossy path I love so much.
When you come out of the trees, you're on a hot, sandy hillside. It was hot dry sand and some moss when we moved here, but slowly the grass is taking hold.
This is the south end of the loop, already looking green and overgrown. I'll have to take a picture later in the summer when the grass and the goldenrod is nearly as high as my head!
The only drawback to these pictures is that Blogger wants to post teeny tiny versions of them, and I had to hink around with Picasa to make them post bigger. But Autostitch sure is a fun way to show a wider-angle view!
