Certain landscapes are simply too vast and magnificent for a normal shot to do them justice and panoramic shots are the best way to capture the magnitude of a place in one shot. An extended frame tends to present a landscape at its best. Thanks to technology, you don’t have to be a professional photographer these days to take a good panoramic shot. From Macchu Picchu in Peru to Antarctica, we bring you a collection of some of our panorama images from around the world.
