Behind the scene : how this panorama was madeThe midday time of the equinox was windy with variable clouds. At the exact moment, the sky was overcast. I chose the panorama from this time (12:25pm - 12:27pm CST), marking the exact border between seasons and the time of balance between night and day. Photos on my website, wholeo.net, show sunshine marking times just before and after the equinox.
I chose the Seaside sundial site as an enclosed space marked off from the residential neighborhood with a thick hedge border as a special place for celebrating the passage of time, acted out in light and space by the heavenly spheres of earth and sun.
I used a panohead for the first time and was delighted with its assistance.
