Over the last couple of weeks I got out a few times to do some panorama photography with the Gigapan Epic and my converted for infrared photography Canon 350D.
As the weather and my schedule have permitted, I have been out doing panorama photography with my IR converted Canon 350D and a slightly modified Gigapan Epic motorized panorama platform. A fairly calm and sunny day allowed me some time in the Fitzroy Gardens in Melbourne.

Yesterday I needed to get out for some emotional recovery time doing photography. So I spent the day till the weather closed in too much driving through the country around Gisborne and Romsey in Central Victoria.
