Round Hill round-up

The joy of Panoramicearth is the stats they provide for embedded 'tours'. Previously, Frayssinet le Gelat village square was by far the most popular virtual tour. In the last month though - Round Hill at Wittenham Clumps is approaching 1000 views!

My first spherical!

Back in the pill box, I took zenith and nadir photos - just to see what happens. Most panoramic images don't really benefit from the full spherical treatment, but for fancy floors and ornate ceilings - it was worth having a go. Easypano's zoom buttons are still the wrong way round and they disappear completely after full-screen viewing. Refresh the page to get them back.

By the way, the strange looking black rectangle and circular scale is the Panosaurus 2.0 head which is holding the camera and which is, in turn, screwed to a Bembo ball and socket head and my rickety old 'Planet' tripod. These would not normally appear.

Obviously, the camera's not visible, but where's the photographer? I was stood right there, honest!
