Caucasus in 3D. Summer 2001
There were two crazy weeks of every day hiking. And it's not so easy to make
stereo photos in the mountains because of large sizes. And stereo basis have to
be from tens to hundreds meters. I took all these pictures only with one
camera. How? I make one picture from one point and run throw the stones
and surprised friends to second point, where I make one more picture. Why
do I run? Because of clouds. They move and spoil stereo photo this way.
And as faster I run as 3D photo will be better.
Mountain lakes are very cold. Some of them covered with ice even
in the summer. It's a special pleasure to swim there and I didn't miss such
possibility. There is a lot of fun when you slide down the snow hill and jump
with high speed to cold water! Here is very interesting 3D photo - ancient
icon of Jesus Christ! It's found 3 years ago and it is most ancient Russian
icon. It was painted more then 1000 years ago - in the VIII century by Allans.
Allans were a refugees from Byzantium. There was not allowed to worship to an
icons in Byzantium, that's why allans came here, in Caucasus and settled here.
So, take you RG glasses and enjoy the views of Caucasus mountains!

There many 3D photos are not ready yet. I need to scan and render them. I'll do
this as soon as possible. So visit this page again.
