Picture of the week 6/18/13
Van Norden Meadow is at its prime this week for wildflowers. The Meadow Penstamon are really spectacular this year. This 360 degree pano gives you some idea of how great it is out there.
Technote: The viewer that is used for viewing the 360 pano is a java applet. If your browser gives you a warning about an “unsigned” application or some such thing, the viewer app is safe. Unfortunately, some browsers will just not run the viewer.
Thanks for all your educated comments on hikes and the wildflowers!
I have been able to open and view all previous photos but I can’t view this latest one “Van Norden 360”
I have a newer Mac with the latest OS.
Yes it is a sad commentary on the state of things today. The Java programming language has been used by bad guys to infect computers via web pages. As a result, many of the browsers now block pages with java programs, good or bad. The browser used to notify you and ask if you want to run it, but now they are just blocking java pages. If you really want to view this you might try another browser or you can change your security settings, although that is not straight forward for many browsers.
