A team of photographers led by Filippo Blengini have created a panorama of the Mont Blanc the tallest mountain in the European Union which consists of 70,000 images or 46 terabytes of pictures stitched together into one massive 365 gigapixels picture.
The photography team spent 35 hours over two weeks at 3500 meters, recording the image using a Canon 70D DSLR with a Canon EF 400mm f/2.8 II IS lens and an extender that was attached to a robotic mount.
“The astonishing majesty of this impressive white giant is too wide to be represented either in words or images. You have to be there to feel it. But now, you can grab that rarefied atmosphere through the highest resolution panorama ever made: a way to know, explore and feel the Mont Blanc. No matter if you’re not an alpinist or a photographer: from now onwards the highest mountain in Europe will be part of your life like never before.”
