Other Solstice/Water PanoramasMy original intention was to submit an aerial view of the Edmund G. Brown California Aqueduct, which carries water from the Sacramento/San Joaquin Delta nearly 450 miles (724 km) south to quench the thirst of the Los Angeles basin. Alas, no wind on the day I tried – but I did get a presentable panorama on the ground, which you may see here.
The Monterey Bay Aquarium is one of the world's finest, and I also shot a solstice panorama of their centerpiece exhibit, the 10-meter high Kelp Forest.
