Cool: Check out the largest photo of Prague ever taken

Prague-based photographer Jeffrey Martin has made a career out of creating some of the biggest photos ever taken, 360° pictures that contain billions of pixels of information.

But Martin has outdone himself with his latest photograph of Prague, billed as the largest photograph of the Czech capital ever taken.



It’s a 900,000-pixel wide image taken from the top of Old Town Hall that comes in at a whopping 405-gigapixels in size. You can check out the Prague photo in all it’s glorious detail over at 360gigpixels.com.

Martin’s Prague photo just might be one of the largest images ever taken; his 320-gigapixel photo of London is in the 2014 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest photograph (at the time) ever created.

It’s certainly impressive for those familiar with the Czech capital. From the top of Old Town Square, you can zoom into other landmarks like the Prague TV Tower and the Petřín Lookout Tower and spot visitors on the observation decks.

Martin took the photo from a unique vantage point: on top of scaffolding that was erected on top of Old Town Hall during reconstruction of the building and the famed Astronomical Clock late last year. That scaffolding gave him five extra stories of height above the tower.

The photo was taken over the course of three days, and took an additional five months of full-time work to complete, combining over 8,000 individual images into one seamless picture the stretches almost a million pixels in width.
