Gigapixel Image Of Mt. Everest And The Khumbu Glacier
Created by David Breashears this past spring, this gigapixel image shows some incredible detail of the Everest and Khumbu areas. If you look in the lower center, you can see the sprawl of Everest base camp, with the Khumbu Glacier icefall curving from just above the basecamp up towards the mountains. Apart from being visually stunning, images like these could prove useful for expedition planning, given their immense detail. Via GlacierWorks.
