Red/Cyan 3D glasses are needed to view the following photos.
Well, for no particular reason, I thought I’d show some photos from my trip through Alberta last spring.
Vegreville, a small town in central Alberta, is best known for its roadside attraction, the Vegreville Pysanka. The metal replica of a Pysanka, or Ukrainian Easter Egg, is visible from the highway, and was the worlds largest(it has since been overtaken by an egg in Ukraine).
The egg was commissioned in 1973 to celebrate the centennial of the founding of the RCMP. The Pysanka was designed by Ron Resch, a computer science professor- the computer modelling of the egg was a complex task. The design is composed of thousands of interlocking pieces, machine cut into the precise shape. The egg pivots on the stand, acting as a weathervane.
The Vegreville Egg visible from Highway 16, one of the Trans-Canada Highways. I’ve been to the Pysanka several times, but only once since I started taking 3D photos. Of course, I didn’t have good weather… in fact, it is the same type of weather I had yesterday. I cancelled my drive for the long weekend this time.
Here’s a 2D photo of Vegreville in better weather.
