History Captured. 1,474 megapixel photograph of the innaguration.
Too stunning for words.
Photographer David Bergman used 220 images from a Canon G10 and a Gigapan system to complete this masterpiece.
You can zoom into the photo with incredible detail, easily finding people nodding off, or taking a personal snapshot of this historic moment (nice iPhone Yo-Yo Ma). Here's a closeup zoom.
What if we could have studied
history like this. By seeing the faces of every soldier on a
battlefield, or the minute details of a key moment. Will future
students study this photo? If so, I am glad that this was captured.
