1474-Megapixel Panoramic Photo Of Obama Inauguration

What more has to be said than the title? I couldn't embed it here (honestly it wouldn't do the photo justice), but there is a flash player after the jump that allows you to zoom in so close, you can almost read the notes on the bands sheet music. The final image consists of 220 images taken with a Gigapan and it took over 6 hours for the software to construct them into one image. Enjoy!

The photographers name is David Bergman and I highly recommend reading about how he made this image at his blog. You can even request to be notified when a print becomes available for purchase. If you just want to see the picture in all its glory, you can skip right to the full screen viewing by clicking on the photo below. Enjoy!
