Yes. It's as close to looking down as possible, The gimbal will not rotate a full 90 degrees.

I have a few more similar photos. Enjoy!

I was visiting my friends in the countryside (Scania, Sweden) this weekend, since I was getting a new cat from them. Yesterday, Sunday, was a lovely autumn day, and we went for a long walk in the countryside, in the forest and along two lakes. It was perfect weather for photography and I took a whole bunch of photos,
among them a couple of panoramas of the lakes in the forest.

Here two of them are:

Lake number 1:

This little fella did NOT want his picture taken and he offered to punch me out if I persisted. I snapped a quick one and ran for my life.

Thanks. It was taken while we were on a "getaway" trip a couple of weeks ago. You rent a "tiny cabin" like this:
Getaway_small.jpg


Where you have no cell/wifi ( there is a land line for emergencies), and you can disconnect for a bit.
I took it by laying my cell on the table and using the button on its pen/stylus to snap the photo ( I had to use the "pro" settings for the camera.)

The crickets had been very vocal earlier, but it being early Oct, and getting pretty chilly at night, they had quieted down by now.

I have no clue what kind of fungus or mold it is. It was growing on an alder branch.

Often these fanciful names are less than convincing, but this one is truly awesome.

My bet would be on solid build-ups/precipitates on the edge of the pool. I have seen similar ones in karst areas.

And some Detroit Iron. These new cars today look like they are made out of electric shavers.

The purple car is very beautiful, in my opinion!

Don't spend much time mulling through my pics, not that I really have all that many. In the old photo contest weekly I'd sometimes forget a photo that would have fitted the theme. But lately since the last iOS update every day my I-pad presents me a selection of them. Some incredible algorithm they must have seems to pick out the good ones mostly, and some are quite good though I say it myself.

These wolves are in a famous wildlife park in Canada whose name I forget.

One of my former colleagues is hidden behind the whiteboard. The red X marks the window of my former office, which I showed you all in an old photo contest thread.
