Machu Picchu In 16 Gigapixels

Machu Picchu In 16 Gigapixels
Photographer Jeff Cremer captured the highest-resolution photo ever shot of Machu Picchu, the most popular tourist destination in Peru and one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. Unlike other gigapixel projects this one is very well documented, offering an interesting behind-the-scenes look at how these gargantuan images are made.
