    Default Picture of all 4 seasons

    I forget where exactly I got the idea from but ever since I saw it, I have been set on making my own. I am going to the same place and taking a picture for the different seasons. I started in Winter, and I just took the Spring pictures. I have not really had a chance to do much with the pictures at this point other than to simply have taken them. I just need two more and then I will have the complete set. In theory I would like to get this printed and mounted to display them somewhere, but that will be down the road. Anyone else done anything similar to this? If so post them up.




    Panoramic ones (a little off from where I originally took the winter ones, I may go back and retake them):

    Looks good.

    I've been wanting to do this as well. I have an idea for it just haven't gotten around to doing it.

    Very cool. Knowing me, I'd forget to take one in a season, and have to wait a year. :P

    you should chop them vertically and put them together to complete one picture. even though its been done a crap ton of times before.

    Not sure I follow what you are saying. Do you have an example?

    It really sucks that they changed the river a bit. They took out the dead trees and put in some rocks this spring after I took the pictures. Now they are different.

    He means like, break them in quarters, and take a different slice from each picture.

    Good looking, it'd only work/look right, if he literally left the tripod there. Otherwise trees/branches will always be off.

    However, day and night might work. Hm..........

    Looks good though! I may try this.

    What about taking a couple piece of pipe or PVC and sticking them in the ground, say 6" buried and 1" above ground, then sit the tripod's legs in the pipes?

    Find a rock that won't go anywhere (say the size of your head) to mark the spot. You'd still have to aim the camera but at least you'd be in the identical spot 6 months later. You could center on a tree out in the distance to get the aim right and probably get a close to identical scene.
