Fruit Mound Panorama

 I love the panoramas the iPhone can take.  These photos are taken from the Fruit Mound at the RHS garden, Wisley.  The mound has two spiral paths leading to a small open place at the top, with a couple of seats, and I stood on a seat to take these.

The first shows what the paths and part of the surrounds actually look like.  The paths, which leave from opposite sides of the centre, are lined with apple trees that are trained along the fences in a sort of one-sided espalier. (If there is a proper name for this, I don't know it.)  Incidentally, the grass down towards the glasshouses was marked "keep off" because of waterlogging, but you can see where a few people have walked down there anyway.

In the panorama, the paths are twisted into lovely curves and loops.  You can see parts of the exits and seats at the far edges of the photo.  I am not yet perfect at holding the phone accurately while moving it around, and I have photoshopped a few spots at the bottom of the picture to keep the feel of the colours and shapes while removing what I thought were unsightly black blotches.   I think that's only obvious in one place!
