Unusual perspectives

The MFN has a great dinosaur hall – just ask Mike Taylor and Matt Wedel! However, the public is limited to looking at the beasts from the ground.

There are upstairs windows, and previously I have taken advantage of their existence to take photos from above (see here). Today, thanks to B. Esch of the MFN’s exhibition department, I can present some pictures from a really unusual, normally totally inaccessible point of view.

OK, OK, this is NOT a sauropod. It is my good old Guinea Pig Mk. 2, Kentrosaurus aethiopicus. Still, a pretty cool view! Here’s a sauropod now:

And a side view (stitched with hugin):

How did I get into these places? Well, Mr. Esch and a colleague were moving some of the spotlights in the adjacent room, and that required a tall ladder. They were kind enough to let me use the ladder afterwards! Many thanks to them!

For the finale, a total of the hall, again stitched with hugin. As always, click through for larger version, or email me for full scale.
