Panoramas

A colleage of mine told me about this wonderful website which has masses of digital panoramas of famous landmarks and scenes in QTVR format. If you haven’t seen these before, a good one to start with is that of the Eiffel Tower – click and hold your mouse button while dragging the mouse to move your view around and use the ‘shift’ and ‘ctrl’ keys to zoom in and out.

As well as loads of great photos there is information on how to create your own, for example with specialist cameras, special lenses, or your regular camera and a lot of patience.

You’ll need to download Apple Quicktime if you haven’t already, but it’s worth it.
