Photo of the week
I just saw this work by Nick Risinger of a 5,000 megapixel photograph of the night sky. It is the ultimate panorama. See the zoomable photograph and read all bout how it was created on Nick’s blog Photopic Sky Survey. One of the most remarkable aspects of this project was Nick’s perseverance and willingness to quit his job just to be able to finish his project. It takes a lot of guts to leave a job for a project that may not have any financial reward, especially at the outset. I respect the fact that Nick embarked on this project because he wanted to do it for the sake of his vision, and in the process got an experience of a lifetime.
There is also an AP article that is published in The Washington Post.
