I’m speechless. After looking at a few of these, I guess I’ll just throw my cameras away.
Way back in 2008, I shot some photos from a balloon over Bagan, Burma, and was pretty satisfied with the results. Well, I’m humbled to say that I’ve been utterly outdone. This Russian Panorama site is absolutely amazing – easily one of the most compelling visuals I’ve ever seen on my 30″ monitor. Yes, there are other popular 360 pnorama sites, but none as refined or as breathtaking as this one. I recommend you check out all of the panos! I know that over time, I will! A few of our favorites so far – other-worldly Iceland, the unreal Taj Mahal, a stomach-churning view of Machu Pichu, and of course, the very first one. But spend a little time on the site. I’m sure you’ll find your own favorites. While visiting, be sure to check the FAQ page and watch “The method of panoramas creation”.
I’ve permalinked the site on my sidebar to remind you to visit often.
Thanks to Andrew for the introduction to this amazing site.
