In the current 3 months I have missed only about 4 days. This usually was because of way too much rain at the time. I shot many days with light rain. I just put a piece of plastic over the camera to protect it and took the zenith (up shot) last, to minimize the amount of water on the lens. In 2003, I created a few panoramas to show off different stages of construction and improvements I was making to our back yard. In 2004, I decided it would make a neat series shot from the same location. I tried to shoot a pan every Saturday. The scene changed too much from one week to the next. I knew I would have to take many more images to make it smooth transition through the season. I never did publish them on my web site and my hard disk crashed and I lost most of the panoramas I shot that year. There are a few from 2003 still on my web site. I was doing lots of construction that year and the back yard went through some major changes. This year I only have some minor improvements I want to make. The garden itself has matured quite nicely. So instead of showing construction and improvements it now shows the garden itself as it grows through the season. If for nothing else, I will be able to use this to see where I need to fill in some color holes (places and times where I don't have flowers blooming).
