I’ve been away in Denver, at the Geological Society of America annual meeting, plus a few days in the Rockies, so haven’t posted lately. And naturally I caught someone’s cold germs along the way, so I’m feeling pretty lousy. Let’s try a trick that geologists are trained to do: viewing stereophotos without a viewer. This is a pair of shots I took showing “Mount Ararat” in upper Broadway Terrace. It’s my personal candidate for the original Rockridge Rock. Click on the image for a much larger pair.
You get the stereo effect by crossing your eyes until the images fuse, then directing your focus onto the fused image. This example is a little strong. All I do to make them is take two shots, first leaning left, then leaning right. I give more detailed instructions for viewing stereopairs and some examples on my About.com site. If the effort makes your eyes ache, now you know how I’m feeling at the moment.
