Archive for the ‘A week in Editors’ Picks’ Category

Planet Earth is amazing, no doubt about that, no matter if you prefer natural beauties over those created by men. In today’s Editors’ picks summary, you can admire both. And we’re pretty sure you’ll enjoy the ride.

 

Bergeggi Night by AndreaFacco (click the picture to open the pano)

Sure, the Milky Way panos are our favourites, but this one’s amazing. The Milky Way overlooks the coast in the northern part of Italy near the town of Bergeggi, while the sea reflects the city lights shining from a distance. Amazing!

 

Kapellbrücke Luzern, Switzerland during winter by night by Florian Lotter (click the picture to open the pano)

No doubt that Switzerland is wonderful, but this European country is popular for its mountain ranges and an untouched nature. However, as this pano shows, Swiss cities have a lot to offer as well. Such as Luzern, with its romantic bridges over the Reuss river. And it looks stunning from above!

 

Iceland Northern Lights by Flavio Di Mattia (click the picture to open the pano)

Sometimes we feel a bit sad that we do not live in an area with occasional northern lights. Flavio was lucky enough to capture this natural miracle and the result is simply wonderful.

 

Temple of The Goddess Hathor, Hypostyle Hall by Alexey Miroshnikov (click the pictures to open the panos)

Alexey took these panoramic photos in the Hathor Temple, the main temple of the Dendera complex, more specifically in its Large Hypostle hall. The earlies extant building in the whole complex was build more than 300 years BC, but the Temple was build a bit later, during the Ptolemaic period. Anyway – still a lot to admire inside.

Bokor Hill Haunted Palace by Adam Graham (click the picture to open the pano)

We’ll start with a creepy one. This haunted house is located in Cambodia, on top of the Bokor Mountain and it certainly is a place where you don’t want to spend the night in. And as you can see in the description, it has some interesting history as well!

 

Anhumas Abyss dive by Marcio Cabral (click the picture to open the pano)

This pano is amazing, this is what you get when you take an underwater pano with some amazing light from above. How awesome would it be to dive over there and enjoy the scenery!

 

Arches National Park – Sand Dune Arch by Carsten Arenz (click the picture to open the pano)

If you’re from Utah, we’re pretty sure you know the hiking trails in the Arches national park. If not, we may well recommend it! The Sand Dune Arch is one of the cool things to see there – and if you’re not a hiking fan, you can just have a look around in this panoramic photo.

 

Сибайский каръер by Максим (click the picture to open the pano)

This huge quarry is certainly a cool thing to look at – especially from above, as in this aerial shot – but can you imagine living next to one? Not that nice anymore. But hey – this panoramic photo is really worth your time.

 

Aerial Sunset over Snowy Crete by Vasilis Triantafyllou (click the picture to open the pano)

You don’t get to see the lovely island of Crete covered in snow! Even though it’s a bit more popular for its sun and warm weather, this actually doesn’t look that bad, does it? Actually, this pano is an Editors’ pick for a reason!

 

There’s more!

Mosque Paramaribo Suriname by Studio Mambeau (click the picture to open the pano)

The Angel of Peace in Munich by B. Quitterer (click the picture to open the pano)

This time we are not going to travel from one place to another. Instead, we will stay and explore one particularly interesting region in Turkey – Cappadocia.

The region is located in the eastern part of Turkey and even though the name itself dates back to 6th century BC, but it’s been proven that people lived there much earlier – around 6500 BC – and that’s a lot of history that shaped the spirit of the whole region. It boasts not only cultural, but also geological heritage, as a number of places is like anything else on the planet. Whether you seek natural beauties or architectural miracles, this is the right place for you.

Heiner Straesser brings you an amazing series of panoramic photos from Cappadocia, which gives you the image of what the place really looks like. Explore ancient churches and chaples, or other buildings and enjoy some stunning views over nature which is truly special.

Hi all! It looks like another virtual trip over the world, thanks to some of the magnificent panoramic photos the 360Cities photographers uploaded recently. And there’s a lot to admire again!

 

Winter wonderland by Rami Saarikorpi (click the picture to open the pano)

Let’s start in Finland – and you can be sure it’s really cold over there these days. This is Kontiolahti, which really looks like winter wonderland. Even though you would not feel wonderful being down there in that temperature, would you?

 

Redwood Memorial Grove Track and Pier at Lake Tarawera by Christian Kleiman (click the pictures to open the panos)

These two panos from New Zealand give you an image of how beautiful the nature really is over there. A deep forest and a pier at a quiet lake. If New Zealand is too far for you to travel, our panoramic photos can help!

 

Dead Tool by Juan José Torrado (click the picture to open the pano)

This is a creepy one. It seems like this old windmill has not been working for a while and it could easily be considered as haunted – especially thanks to this great photo, which makes it look quite scary.

 

National Assembly of Ecuador by Santiago Salinas (click the picture to open the pano)

How cool is this place? This certainly does not look like some other national asseblies, parliaments ets. – all shiny and colourful. One would imagine how lovely it could be, working there, however, there’s some serious stuff they discuss there!

 

Berlin from Cathedral Church by luis davilla (click the picture to open the pano)

No doubt, Berlin is a wonderful city. But how beautiful is it from above, especially at night? Luis took this pano from atop of the Berlin Cathedral and the result is magnificent. The clear sky at dawn, street lights below… Brilliant job.

Here’s a couple of other panos that Richard has taken in New Caledonia. Worth a look!

 

Moon Rise and Sunset at Fonts Point in the Borrego Badlands by Allan Der (click the picture to open the pano)

Sunsets are wonderful, no doubt about that. This one is special, though, as Allan managed to capture both sunset and moon rise on the same panoramic photo. Just open it, turn around and enjoy this beauty.

 

Dusk Falls Over Mei Foo Sun Chuen by wongchichuen (click the picture to open the pano)

Aerial shots of Hong Kong have been a regular part of our Editors’ pick reviews and this edition is no exception. Wonderful clouds over the city that’s slowly getting ready for the upcoming quiet night – this combination works perfectly on this one. But is Hong Kong actually ever quiet?

The Vršatec Castle by Sergej Esnault (click the picture to open the pano)

This one feels warm, too! There’s a fantastic view across the Slovak countryside from the top of the Vršatec castle – just have a look around and admire the beauties of this central-European country.

 

Marischal Square by Darren Wright (click the picture to open the pano)

A little bit to the north-west, you’ll find the Marischal square in Aberdeen, Scotland. But how come it is so empty, when the decorated trees show that the Christmas time is just around the corner?

Segmento Del Mictlantecuhtli by Luis Erantzcani (click the picture to open the pano)

Now this one is creepy. Seems like some kind of a Mexican tradition (maybe Luis can help us out in the comments?), but you can be sure you don’t want to meet any of these guys in a dark alley in the middle of the night!

 

Dead Tree in Deadvlei and Sunset at Quivertree Forest by Martin Hertel (click the pictures to open the panos)

Ounasvaara, Rovaniemi, Lapland by FlyFoto Oy (click the picture to open the pano)

Pasaia 2, Behind the bay entrance by Pierre Aubineau (click the picture to open the pano)

We knew that Spain was wonderful, but this wonderful? Here’s another brilliant aerial shot, that doesn’t make you feel cold like the previous one, though. The sun is casting its last light on the rocks on the coast and everything is quiet, ahead of another night.

 

Curiosity at Murray Buttes by Thomas APPERE (click the picture to open the pano)

Sometimes we move from one continent to another, sometimes we just change countries, or even cities. But this time, we need to travel to another planet. It’s been a really long time since the Mars Curiosity Rover has landed on Mars, and it’s been really busy examining the surface and taking photos, too. Here’s a couple of them, stitched together.

 

Beautiful Aurora by Bane Obradović (click the picture to open the pano)

You simply can’t say no to a nice northern lights pano. In Norway, you can easily get used to them, but it always feels special – even though you just enjoy a panoramic picture. Still beautiful!

This is really a special place – The Sky Bridge in Langkawi, Malaysia. Truly an amazing experience for tourists, giving every visitor a unique opportunity to look over the mountains, covered with rainforests, and the coast down below. An amazing structure, really!

Daguniu dongcuan by kmnet (click the picture to open the pano)

Nothing like a nice view, especially when the weather is this nice. What got our attention this time, was the crooked road going down the valley – just have a look at it! Definitely not for the faint-hearted, that’s for sure!

 

Fitz Roy and Milky Way by Marcio Cabral (click the picture to open the pano)

The weather was fantastic this time as well, however, you need to be more of a night person to enjoy this. And a bit of a traveller, too, as Marcio Cabral had to wonder pretty far in Patagonia to take this magnificent pano. And it was worth it.

 

Via Ferrata Olivers Mariazeller by Sergej Esnault (click the picture to open the pano)

You need to deserve this view. You need to work for it. To be exact, you need to use the climbing route, which – despite not being that difficult – is exactly what you need to do. And after that, this view feels even nicer!

 

Cape Roca by Andrew Bodrov (click the picture to open the pano)

Sometimes, panoramic photos make you speechless and this is exactly the case. Andrew Bodrov visited the furthest place down the west in Portugal and was rewarded by this stunning sunset. Wow!

Aerial Chania Lighthouse of the old port Crete by Vasilis Triantafyllou (click the picture to open the pano)

One more aerial shot, a little bit similar to the previous one. This time, however, we need to travel all the way to Greece for this view. And for you this time, it is only one click away. And it’s worth clicking!

 

Porto Pino dunes and Cala Beppe Podda by Paolo e Mauro Mattiello (click the pictures to open the panos)

What do these two panos have in common? They both capture the world both under water and above. One out in the sea, the other one in a little bay surrounded by rocks. Looks like Paulo and Mauro had a tremendous time in Sardinia!
