World Wide Panorama - Derby Cathedral Quarter Wheel

Happy New Year and welcome to 2010.
My first blog entry of the year is about my latest entry on the World Wide Panorama website which has just gone live today. My entry for this event is of the Derby Cathedral Quarter Wheel in Derby Market Place.
I have contributed 18 360 degree panoramic photographs over the years.

Here is my best of 2009 entry:
Derby Cathedral Quarter Wheel.
It is best viewed in Fullscreen Mode.

In case you have never heard of The World Wide Panorama:

The World Wide Panorama began in March 2004 and has become an ongoing series of events. Photography takes place on the solstices (longest and shortest days of the year) and equinoxes (day and night of equal length). There is also a "best of" each year.

A VR panorama (VR for virtual reality) is a specially created computer image that goes all the way around the viewer. It is a revolutionary way to document a particular place and time – the next best thing to being there.
VR panoramas are interactive - Use the mouse to rotate the panorama, use Shift and Control to zoom in and out.

To look at other peoples entries for the best of 2009 you can use this map:

If you use Google Earth then you can even download a .kml file which has place markers for every panoramic photograph that has been entered since 2004 :
KML File for Google Earth.

Hope you like this.
