We finally got the shot. Low cloud threatened to hide the moon from us but a floating window revealed it to us.
Some 3D photos of the pilgrimage to come soon.
As a surprise event Rev A Slade took a few of the faithful to the Salceuu!d (the pinnacles) to witness the full moon and the sun in the sky at the same time. This is a very rare sight and can only be seen from a great height. The Salceuu!d is 759 meters above sea level and takes 4 hours to walk to.
The Reverend took this panoramic photo (unfortunately only 2D) which pans from south to west to north and east. Click on the picture to enlarge. Because of the scope of the photo the moon seems small. It is under the large cloud to the left of the nearby rock which actually the top of the Salceuu!p.
They stayed in a hut nearby and at dawn the faithful ascended again hoping to see the opposite – the moon setting as the sun rose. Unfortunately it was too cloudy to see anything.
The Reverend Arthur Slade is pleased to present his most satisfying 3D photography to date. It was a morning in April after the river had settled down after flooding. The Reverend’s focus has been on reflections, magnification and capturing movement.
These images are intended to be viewed with red/blue 3D glasses. Click on an image to enlarge them in a photo carousel.

Sadly we couldn’t see the total eclipse.The boat trip fell through due to severe weather warnings so we made do with a street party back home. We provided the public with a viewing masks and showed how to see it with the simple hand projection technique.
The hail and lightning storms the night before rained themselves out to give us some clear views of the first half of the eclipse. However we didn’t mind the light cloud cover because we could see the eclipse through it without the need for viewing gear.
Here are some photos (best viewed with red/cyan 3D glasses). In the right eye is someone viewing the eclipse and through the left is what they see. There is also a 4D shot of photographer Simon Marr and a 3D photo he took of a hand projection. Most crowd shots were taken by Simon.
There is an CGImage that I’ve made 3D of an eclipse from Earth’s orbit. I’ve also made a 4D image from two 2D images. The clouds moved between shots so have given a 3D effect. Because it is time that caused the 3D effect it is dubbed 4D.
BTW we were unable to see the total eclipse so the image I used in the photos is from somewhere else. All other photos of the eclipse were taken by Rev Arthur Slade.
