Valerie, Is this a drone shot? However you took it, it does look like a fun way to experience a garden.
(Empathy over being surrounded by the white stuff - the other four-letter "s" word. We seem to be getting an inch or more, or much more, every night, with no end in sight.)

No Elizabeth - not a drone shot. This is one 'still' from a movie produced by the InstaOne 360 camera on a long extension. My husband started this a year ago and the movies are amazing - you can 'walk' anywhere in the garden that you have passed by with the camera, like Google street view I guess. I just enjoy (and make gardens) he works the software Smiling

That sounds so cool. And it's probably a technology you can use in public places that don't allow drones. I've seen a few of such 360 degree videos, but had forgotten about their existence when viewing your shot.

Remember when we could travel? We got it for a trip to India last February and it was almost an essential tool if you wanted to get good shots of anything and everything without a whole bunch of people in the way. Sometimes the long extension wasn't allowed - they viewed it as a Selfie-stick - but the shorter one was OK. Trouble is you need the specialized software installed on every device you want to use to view it properly - but it is better than Streetview Thumbs up

Ah, the carefree days of relatively safe travel! Sounds like your investment in the camera and software paid off, though. Even in places without large crowds, I can envision instance where that different perspective would pay off. Thanks for sharing the info and insight.

It is always my intention to do a video around the garden each year in spring, summer and fall to add to my 'still' records but as that takes a couple of hours, pretty sure the 360 is going to be working a lot every year as it only takes my husband about half an hour to do almost all of it Hurray!

That sounds like a wonderful way to make periodic visual surveys. If you used a reproducible location for the camera, you'd get a really good idea of how things change through the seasons, and from year to year. Just doing it by walking around, and taking still shots, it is hard to assemble the shots it a way that allows for that kind of comparison.

My garden is a couple of acres but if I make him Hilarious! walk the same route each time I could certainly have videos to compare, season by season.

OMG! Two acres of garden. That's what I call a labor of love! So impressed. I tip my hat to you.
