Fall Forest Canopy

Gigapan photo (360 megapixels, give or take) of my backyard, taken straight upwards, among some of the 20 trees on our property. Taken just before a storm came in and removed the vast majority of leaves that were still remaining on the trees. Zoom in by clicking on the picture and try to identify each tree by its leaves.

I took this 370-megabyte panorama photo of my backyard today using the Gigapan robotic camera mount. Click the picture to keep zooming closer and closer to see the full resolution.

September 11 Memorial at the Newseum

Filed under: Gigapan Panoramas — Andy Carvin @ 8:06 pm

Here’s a high-res panorama photo (250 megapixels) I took of the Newseum’s 9-11 Memorial. Because the panorama is taken as a series of dozens of photos that later get stitched together, it causes an eerie effect, with people moving around within the photograph. Click the picture and zoom in – you can actually read the headlines on the newspapers in the background.
