The Whole Wide World

AirPano's speciality is stunning panoramic photographs taken in flight: this plunging interactive piece above Angel Falls, the world's highest waterfall, being a wonderful example. Other pieces include the Maldives, the Great Pyramids of Giza, and Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany. A list of all the works in the catalog, and as locations on a world map. All of the linked panoramas require Flash (amd most have music, which can be muted), but the site also supports lower resolution versions for mobile devices. [more inside]

Paris by night by 15000 by 520 pixels

This utterly stunning panorama of Paris by night (WARNING! 15000x520 image, 1.8mb) is almost too good to be true. You can see so many landmarks it's ridiculous - this version has them labelled for your convenience. I traced it back to Arnaud Friche's gallery of panoramic photographs of Paris, churches and cathedrals, and other cities. There are so many beautiful hi-res photographs here that I won't waste any more of your time talking about them.
