Unique aerial panoramas
Scott Haefner has discovered a (relatively) simple and inexpensive way to produce 360° panoramas. He hangs a camera with a 180˚ 'fisheye' lens from a kite and takes one picture pointing vertically downwards. He lands the kite, and takes another picture with the lens pointing vertically upwards. He then 'stitches' the images together using a number of software packages. The resulting images are magnificent.
