Photo of the Week – January 2, 2014

I’ve had a couple recent posts about the timelapse imagery from our Derr Wetland restoration.  We get to see some amazing things when there are cameras out there shooting photographs at regular intervals…

At the Derr Wetland, we have one installation that employs two cameras mounted right next to each other, allowing us to merge images from them into wide panoramas.  I’ve done just that with four pairs of images that show a pretty good range of conditions and seasons at the site, including quite a bit of variation in water level over time.  The photos are also pretty attractive for just being automated shots.  You can click on each image to see a bigger, sharper version.  I hope you enjoy them:

The groundwater level rose this fall after irrigation was over and we had some good rains in the area.  As a result, some of the higher side channels filled up with water.
