Editors’ picks of the week – First panos of 2016

Hi guys! We hope your holiday was amazing and you celebrated the Christmas and the New Year’s Eve properly!

The good thing is that the 360Cities community photographers were busy, too, so we have a couple of brand new quality panoramic photos coming your way. Here they are!

 

Mars Panorama – Curiosity rover: Martian solar day 1197 by Andrew Bodrov (click the picture to open the pano)

Can you believe it’s been three years since the Mars Curiosity rover landed on Mars? It’s been taking photos since then, and thanks to Andrew Bodrov we can enjoy them in a lovely spherical view. This one was taken on Curiosity’s solar day 1197 and consists of 199 individual photos stitched together.

Great job by Andrew and – of course – the Curiosity rover. Make sure you read the pano’s description, too, as you can read some pretty interesting background there!

 

Khibiny crossroad by Yuri Zvezdny (click the picture to open the pano)

Back to the Earth (to be honest, there’s more panos taken here)! On Yuri’s pano, you see one of the most beautiful things Earth’s nature has created – the northern lights. No need to add anything else – just watch.

 

Galerie L’Athanor by Mark Fink (click the picture to open the pano)

Mark takes us to an unusual shopping mall in Pezenas, France. As he mentions in the description, this is no ordinary place to shop. A gallery dedicated to art with its shops and museums is definitely a place to visit on your trip to France.

 

Inside Double Arch Alcove by Marek Kosiba (click the picture to open the pano)

Marek’s panos have had their spot in our weekly summary for a while now and this week is no exception, as we simply love the way Marek sees the nature. This time he climbed to the Double Arch Alcove in the Zion National Park, to take a magnificent picture from there. Have a look!

Make sure you check Marek’s other pano from last week, from Vermilion cliffs in Arizona.

 

View over Durdle Door by Peter Stephens (click the picture to open the pano)

We finish this week’s round-up with a lovely shot of the Durdle door near Lulworth in Dorset, England. It is a magnificent natural arch of rock, looming over a lovely beach just next to it. Great pano, Peter!

 

If you want to procrastinate a little bit longer, we get it. Here’s more:
