This epic panoramic pic of the Cape Town sunset yesterday is worth saving [pic]
Posted by on Mar 28th, 2012

So yesterday I was driving along the Atlantic Seaboard at around 5pm and noticed that the cloud formations might make for a decent sunset…couple of hours later and it turns out my prediction was pretty solid. Cape Town didn’t disappoint and delivered an epic sunset and I managed to snap a couple of pics  with my Blackberry along with every other instagram hippie in the city.

Thing is, a smart phone doesn’t quite do the sunset  justice hey. You can’t capture that feeling of grandure you get seeing it in real life. So I took several pics in the hope that I could digitally stitch them together and create a panoramic . Needless to say I’m kak at that and my attempt was nice but nothing to write home. I then got an offer from one Tinus le Roux at gigapixelfancam.com to send  me the pics.

I emailed him with a message saying good luck trying to sort out that mess and I swear not even 5 min later he sent me this.

Do yourself a favour and click on this to enlarge it.

Now that my friends is how we do sunsets in Cape Town.

Outf**kingstanding.

Thoroughly impressed with the work by Tinus and get this…he’s colourblind as well. Yep…my mind was blown too.

I went to check some of the other work Gigapixelfancam (remember them, they were the guys who made the highest definition pic of Cape Town ever HERE ) has been up to and was pleasantly surprised to see that they created a 360 degree gigapixel image of the recent Hong Kong Sevens tournament . You can literally zoom into the face of anyone in the stadium.

Awesome chaps..keep up the great work.
