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?

Photographer Annie Leibovitz Takes a Shot

skyline

Photographer Annie Leibovitz has captured volumes through the prism of her camera lens during a storied career shooting rock stars, celebrities, and politicians for venerable publications like Rolling Stone and Vanity Fair. But a photo campaign for a whiskey? That’s a first for Leibovitz, who was commissioned by Macallan for the third instillation of their Masters of Photography series, capturing portraits of Scottish Actor Kevin Mckidd (Grey’s Anatomy) across Manhattan. The images will be featured on four limited edition single casks—Library, Gallery, Bar, Skyline—aged between 16 and 23 years. But you’ll have to loosen the purse strings if you want a bottle from this rare batch; the 1,000-bottle collection retails for a hefty $2,750 a pop.

TSA Claims Mistaken Identity in Camera Theft

Would everybody please stop picking on the TSA for a cotton-pickin' minute?! Hey, no question the airport-security agency has taken a pummeling from critics lately, especially over accusations of theft. A report by ABC's Nightlinelast week was particularly damning when an iPad stolen from an airport security checkpoint was tracked down to the home of the TSA agent on-duty at the time.  And now comes another dust-up. But this time the TSA claims it had nothing to do with it.
