The arch, or Pont d’Arc by Hapaks (click the picture to open the pano)

This week we start in France. There is a number amazing places along the Ardeche River, and the Pont d’Arc is certainly one of them. Where the water meets the earth. Who wouldn’t like to ride a boat under that huge piece of rock!

 

Freedom space Lago-Naki by Yuri Zvezdny (click the picture to open the pano)

It’s time for some amazing starry skies! Let’s start with this shot from Russia, this pano was take at the Lago-Naki plateau.

 

Milky Way and Star Trails over Bar Harbor by Aaron Priest (click the pictures to open the panos)

This is something really special. Two shots, taken from the same spot from Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park near the Bar Harbor. The first one seems absolutely normal, even though it took a huge time to make it. The second one, though, looks lovely, as the timelapse effect makes it look unreal. Brilliant job!

 

Flores Island, Labuan Bajo, Sunrise by Fietter Chalim (click the picture to open the pano)

To finish our short list of wonderful panoramas from the nature, we have to travel all the way to Indonesia. This aerial shot of Flores Island looks just fantastic.

Breakdown Highway Blues by Salma ElDardiry (click the picture to open the pano)

This pano is really a piece of art, with the lovely night sky and the lights of the car going past the one that’s apparently broken. Even though the whole situation does not seem happy for the guys trying to repair it, the pano is wonderful!

 

Porcos Bay Aerial by Marcio Cabral (click the picture to open the pano)

What an amazing piece of nature the Fernando de Noronha islands are. Porcos bay is just one of many untouched places there, so if you ever get to explore the east coast of Brazil, this spot is certainly a must-see!

Marcio is our PRO, EXPERT and MAESTRO photographers and this panoramic photo is another proof. It’s quite difficult to capture the beauties of the nature, but he’s making it look easy, Laguna Torre looks stunning on this pano.

Leaning Tower of Pisa by jacky cheng (click the picture to open the pano)

This week we start in Italy, with a notoriously known monument – the Leaning Tower of Pisa. This pano is interesting mostly for two reasons. First – the morning light, highlighting the tower, making the photo look magical. Second – notice there is not as many people as usual! Special, really!

 

Facade by Ariadna Lahoz (click the picture to open the pano)

Barcelona is – apart from other reasons – popular for its architecture and design. This one’s a proof. It was captured in Walden 7, an apartment building designed by Ricardo Bofill, which looks simply stunning. Have a look around!

 

Snow Covered Saddle Rock by Jason Wiegand (click the picture to open the pano)

After admiring architectural beauty, let’s now move to the nature. If you prefer snowy peaks of mountain ranges, this pano is for you. Snow covered Saddle rock near Wenatchee is a popular hiking location, and is looks wonderful in the winter.

 

Starry morning of El’ton lake by Yuri Zvezdny (click the picture to open the pano)

Would the Editors’ picks list be complete without a Milky way pano? No, it would not – and this one really deserved its spot here. We love the way the stars are reflected on the surface of the lake, with only minutes remaining until the Sun sets in the distance.

If you ever get to travel to Crete, Greece, make sure you have the time to explore every inch of the island, so you can discover some wonderful spots, such as this one. Artificial caves of Matala beach will certainly become one of the highlights of your trip!

This one’s great – a miniature historical town, built in a little town of Remedello in northern Italy. It’s not finished yet, but it already covers more than 250 square metres and includes more than 100 buildings, roads, lake, rivers and nature. Amazing place!

 

Moon rising by Martin Broomfield (click the picture to open the pano)

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.

Alexey took these panoramic photos in the Hathor Temple, the main temple of the Dendera complex, more specifically in its Large Hypostle hall.

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

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)

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)

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.
