I drive past Mrs Dragicevich's orchard most days and the apples at this time of year just look scumptious! Absolutely, positively, yummy to eat.

In my families' cultural history it was Adam and Eve eating the forbiden fruit, the apple, that marked the begining of our fall from God. Coincedently, this year, the equinox coincided with Easter, which for us and other Christians, marks the begining of our redemption, the begining of our flight back to God!

And yes those apples are yummy! Mrs Dragicevich, Mrs D to most Locals, has one of the last orchard and pack house's in this historic apple growing valley.

Behind the scene : how this panorama was made

This is the first time that I have made a multi row spherical VR with a non fisheye (10.5)lens. PtGui Pro had no probs, other than i found I needed to add images a row at a time or else it would become a jumble. I had to use my 18-70mm Nikkor (at 18mm) as my 10.5mm is off to Japan for a makeover! Somehow the front element was scratched, shock horror!!! I've rechecked and reworked my 'out in the field' photo taking workflow proceedures so it don't happin' agin'. It is repairable and I'll have it back in a month. Wheh!
