Max Abroad : The Best of Spain

Quite simply writing about the best things Spain has to offer and anything that might crop up along the way. Spain is a lot more than just sun, sand and sea...

Snow and Ice - Really impressive!

 Firstly , although this has nothing to do with Spain, apart from the time of year, I thought I would share it with those who have not already seen it, as it is quite simply the most spectacular photography I have seen in a long time. David Breashears has created a project called Glacier Works and has created the most detailed photos of the glaciers in the Himalyas to date. Using a 300mm lense and taking some 400 high resolution photos and merging them with a state of the art programme he has achieved images whihc have 3800 Million Pixels creating a GIGA IMAGE. Thanks to this resolution you can zoom in and out and move around the image as if you were there and had the snow/ ice right in front of you, it is really quite eery at how real it is, its like looking through the window into another world. All the photos were taken at 5700metre above sea level and include Everest an other important peaks/glaciers in the Himalayas. I highly recommend taking a peep, you won't be disapointed! This is the link to one of the projects on Glacier Khumbu, but here are other giga images of other parts available on his site.
