Amazing High Res Image of Machu Picchu

201211-b-machupicchujpg

Machu Picchu is one of the world's most visited ancient ruins with one million annual visitors, yet no one has captured the Incan ruins like this before. Jeff Cremer, photo tour director for the sustainable tourism outfitter Rainforest Expeditions, returned from a recent trip with what may well be the highest resolution (15.9 gigapixels) photo of this man-made wonder ever taken.
 
Head over to www.gigapixelperu.com to see the entire image and explore its remarkable detail by zooming in and out. The photo, shot with a Canon 7D and a 100-400mm f/5.6 lens, consists of 1,920 separate images recorded over the course of nearly two hours. The final image was stitched together on a computer and is 297,500 x 87,500 pixels total. Almost as good as visiting the real thing, right?
