Clouds in 3D stereo!

Syracuse, NY (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: For those of you that know how to CROSS your eyes to superpose these two images ("magic eye" technique), these convective towers jump out of the page in 3D. I took two pics from an airplane window about 2-3 seconds apart, so the "eyes" seeing this cloud are probably hundreds of feet apart, and the depth effect is greatly enhanced over "conventional" eyes that are just a few inches apart

I have heard about 3D possibilities, but they require two lenses/cameras to take the picture, and a special viewing technology (glasses or old fashioned "stereo viewers").

The technique used here, of just taking two pictures and moving the camera laterally between the shots works fine, but requires you to digitally put the images side-by-side (n the right order), then you need to learn to cross your eyes. I hope some wunderground people already know this trick, or try to learn how, Its fun! This technique also allows one to EXAGGERATE the 3D effect by moving the camera further apart than the human eye while taking the two shots

Thanks for the extra effort it takes to post these. I really think that 3D photography technology out of the camera in one image digital form is photograph's last frontier. I talked to an research engineer from a major university who says they are working diligently on that now.

About walcek


Photography has always been a hobby since I saved up babysitting and lawn-mowing earnings for my first SLR back in the 70s as a young kid. I like the random, beautiful things that most overlook in today's hectic pace.
