Playing around with the vertical merging of 4 photos. There is nothing spectacular about this image. It's just a tiny wedge of the view from the back of my house. I am standing about 50 or 60 feet from the back of the house near where the elevation drops off pretty sharply to about 30 feet (roughly 10 meters) below to the south bank of the pond that you can't really see in this photo. I live on a hillside (sort of) with the pond being literally below the house (elevation wise), but it is a pretty good distance from the house, so there are no worries about the house sliding into the pond :-). There is really a lot to see in this vertical panoramic photo, from the empty, seemingly abandoned, bird bath to the ant diggings at the base of the pine tree on the left. Wisteria vines, and old Wisteria seed pods (see if you can find them)- the last of the Azaleas across the pond and across the creek (you can't see the creek for the levy dividing the pond from the creek).
Climb the trees to see the Spanish Moss blowing in the morning breeze and you may even spot a couple of Sweet Gum Balls that haven't yet fallen to the ground. I love the naked branches of little oak trees across the creek and the beginnings of red colored Silver Maple seed pods against and among the bare branches of little deciduous trees in the background. The Siver Maple trees really put on a show with their red seed pods. Hope I remember to photograph them in a week or so. To see all these things, perhaps a look at the larger size will make the hunt a bit easier. A photograph won't capture the big picture that we see with our eyes, but a digital photo in the "large" will focus our attention on the things we generally miss in our inattention to the beauty in nature.
