Spring is coming to this home on the lake, especially the dogwood tree.  Mary asked me to photograph the tree while it still has its flowers.  Below are the results.


A vertical photograph shows the tree and also a view across the lake.

Another reason for a vertical photo is that, with an other-eye partner, it is most suitable for a 3D rendition:

Gaze toward the centerline between the above two images and relax your eyes until a 3D picture appears.  When you have the 3D picture locked in, it's fun to gaze around and note how items recede into the distance as your gaze goes from the dogwood tree to the far shoreline.
(If you need more help, read the paragraph at the bottom of this page.)


Another tree-and-lake picture at a different angle.

... and here is the 3D version:


A wide-angle view taking in the span of both of the above vertical pictures, and more.

You can see in its 3D version why vertical pictures are more suitable for 3D.  Because we must maintain the same horizontal dimension as above to allow eyes to superpose the images, the 3D version for a wide picture is very small.  Still, the 3D picture adds to the 2D picture above.


A view toward west, across Bob and Linda's yard.  Bob is the tiny figure near the center spraying for weeds.

3D counterpart to the above picture:

Closer view of Bob and his sprayer.

Dogwood tree and garden viewed toward Bob and Linda's direction (west) from the upper deck.

At ground level, for a better picture of the garden and seating wall.

Turned toward the lake.

Garden looking east toward Gary's and Nancy's place.  The wallflower in the foreground is the only planter flower blooming so far.

A similar view in 3D.


This is my favorite picture on this page.

Paired with its right-eye picture, the 3D version is striking:

From the shoreline patio.

3D version:

Note how you can see that the boat dock is below the patio and the clouds are far behind the hills in the distance.

If you've never free-viewed 3D pictures

To see the picture pairs on this page in 3D, look toward the central line between the pair and let your eyes relax so they look beyond the screen. As your eyes relax the pictures begin to overlap. When they overlap completely the center of your two-eye vision becomes a single picture in 3D.  Ignore what you see on either side of the 3D picture with your peripheral vision.  Focus your attention on the center image and gaze around until a 3D picture pops into view. (Return to first 3D picture.)

If you still can't bring in the 3D pictures try again on a page with reduced-size pictures
