3D (Anaglyph) photos of archaeological sites

by mike » 14 Apr 2017, 17:14

I have learned that I have difficulty making sense of even my own photos of archaeological sites in/around Sfakia. I am always dependent on the lighting conditions at whatever time of day I happen to be somewhere. Cloudy conditions or midday overhead sun provide almost no contrast to distinguish one pile of grey rocks from another.

To get around this I have gotten into the habit of taking stereo photos. Here are a few examples, for those of you lucky enough to have stereo red/cyan viewing glasses.

An overview of the Anopoli acropolis, chapel/fort in distance:

A view of lower acropolis area, an alleyway visible at left, between walls of living compounds:

The area across the road from Ekaterini. Big wall runs to pile of rubble, ruined structure in middle distance behind rubble pile:

Part of multi-room structure on Sfakia plain, area dated Prehistoric/Roman:

I have no idea what this is. Might be a dog house:

An ancient (seasonal?) living/work station up at Sfakiano gorge rim, well-built walls of structure and fence/compound wall:

House wall, below Ag Ioannis towards Sellouda, the area dated Roman to Turkish period:
