Too much resolution for you?

Have a look at this:

A 2bn pixel zoomable pic of Everest. I've always fancied standing on top of Everest, but looking at this makes me realise just how much of a fantasy that would be!

Re: Too much resolution for you?

It certainly gives a true idea of the conditions climbers face.
Wonder what his gear was???

Well, all we know is the use of a 300mm lens, and a lot of patience piecing together 400 frames! If I was a betting man, I'd say Canon, but who knows?

It reminds me, though, that Chris Bonington took the Olympus OM system on an Everest expedition years ago, and I used to have his book with all those fabulous photos in it.

Unbeliveable panoramic work! But what a crowded place
Do I see a RAF roundel on the one tent from the blue patch in the forground? About half way between the green squares?

Good thing we can now enjoy this panorama and not have to actually go there. Thanks for posting the link!

... the work for the holidays is: Count all outhouse-tents

Re: Too much resolution for you?

Wow what a link. Fantasticly detailed shots but I must say I've never seen anything quite as interactive as that either. Lots of places to zoom in to. Bits I thought were discarded rubbish turn out to be a campsite with loads of tents and people. I now see why you thought it was crowded Falk. You can even zoom inside one of the huts and view an exhibition and read the posters on the wall and then zoom into some of the actual pictures in the exhibition on the wall A definitely must see image that must be interacted with. Thanks again for posting.

There's a pair of climbers on the lower snowy part of the North Ridge of Everest, the one to the left of the summit. A fantastic image for sure.
