Epic100 with Canon S5-IS
The main lawn at the Lyon Arboretum, Manoa Valley, Honolulu, Hawaii. The arboretum is a research and teaching facility, affiliated with the Department of Botany at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. It harbors the world's largest collection of palm species, has an active Ethnobotanical Garden, and a highly successful plant tissue culture facility. The Tissue Culture lab has saved many endemic Hawaiian plants from virtual extinction, and provides propagules of those rare plants for reintroduction into their former habitats.
The Education office keeps a Children's Garden, part of a diverse education program for the many school groups that visit the Arboretum throughout the school year.
Unfortunately, I didn't have identical setups to use side by side to take the two panoramas that make the anaglyph image (maybe next time). I took the two panos sequentially, moving the GigaPan Epic100, and my trusty old Canon S5-IS, about 20 cm to the right for the second shot.
The clouds are problematic, due to their rapid movement, and sequential shooting. I thought the brisk trades would also affect the plants more severely - I'm pleased that the movement is not that noticeable.
The anaglyph effect holds up even when zoomed in.
