Highest resolution photo ever taken of Machu Picchu

In September, photographer Jeff Cremer used a Canon 7D and a 400mm lens to take 1,920 individual pictures of Machu Picchu.

The photos took only 1 hour and 44 minutes to record, with the help of a small robotic camera and advanced computer software. The planning and preparation leading up to the photo shoot took months.

With a resolution of 297,500 x 87,500 pixel (15.9 gigapixels) the picture is the highest resolution photo of Machu Picchu ever taken.
