The Friday Cyclotouriste

a geo-photoblog chronicling my "excursions velo"

On the Road……Marin Headlands looking south

without comments

The sun is hitting the last few feet of the cliff before slipping behind the top of the Marin headlands.

A couple of pro photographers were out here making a GigaPan of the bay. A GigaPan is a massive photographic file made up of thousands of individual exposures captured by a robotic camera, which are all then stitched together by a computer to create a super file with extraordinary detail.

There’s a website dedicated to hosting these images. Here’s a captivating GigaPan of the Shanghai skyline. Note that it’s possible to zoom in and find a small, broken egg on a rooftop or to see the red high heel shoe of a woman crossing a street.

Naturally, I agreed to let these photo pros take a picture of me with my humble iPhone camera. The same camera I used to make the images above.

The wind is gusting about 35-40 mph here, although it doesn’t look it!
