Do you remember my post on my little tree rows discovery? This week, I’ll present you the same picture in a Droste projection, a fascinating way to create recursive versions based on a single (panoramic) image. It’s fun to see the panoramic image going down in a spiral pattern.
If you’re intested in the technical details, click here or on the image to read how to create Droste images:
And it doesn’t stop at static pictures.
It’s even more fun to produce an animated version: If you can share a bandwidth of 6 Megabytes, then click here or on the image below to start the animation on a separate page:

Hope you don’t receive hidden messages from outer space, due to the spiral effect !

Out on my regular walks I went a little bit further, just to detect a nice area of woods whose trees were in full autumn colors. On closer look it turned out that all the trees were planted in rows … Man made structures combined with the natural autumn colors would make an interesting picture, so I thought.
I quickly went through the gaps in the tree rows and made a tree panorama that you see on today’s featured image. I also decided to start counting my interactive Panoramas, so here’s Pano Number 1: If you want to beam up yourself into the trees and spend around 3 mega bytes of loading, click here or on the picture below to open the interactive panorama (might not work on all devices/browsers):
In the last couple of posts my camera went up 4m/12feet to catch some panoramas taken high up with a perspective of a giant. Today we’ll shrink virtually and go close to ground level, so today we’ll stretch up to the perspective at a height of roughly 20cm/8 inch …
On that day it was one of those golden autumn days, and I spent 2 hours in the woods to catch the moss formations that i happened to discover growing at old tree stubs. During my walk I also was lucky to discover a nice colony of mushrooms. On close look you could even think that they’re have a small party on the stump as if it were their high time of their life (which was indeed the case) .
Besides the interest to catch these interesting spots it also was an opportunity to test, how well my small macro tripod could be put to good use for Panorama Photography:

I set the focus to the mushrooms. The rest was Panorama Photography routine: Adjusting the lens at the nodal point, leveling the camera, and shooting an HDR series with a remote shutter. During post processing, everything went smooth (the close focusing distance didn’t make any issues in terms of sharpness and setting of correct nodal point).

This is for a good friend. He’ll recognize it immediately. And he’s definitely going to complain about the blurry background. To make matters worse, I even took some efforts by stitching together 6 photos to create an even blurrier background. But I just wanted to show my friend, how you can transform an ephemeral, day to day scenery into some piece of personal perception …
