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.
The photo shoot was documented by Destin Sandlin, creator of YouTube’s educational Smarter Every Day channel, and sound engineer Gordon McGladdery:
