Discover Monaco 45 Gigapixels presented by Guillaume Roumestan through Gigapixel Tour (Franceâ€™s leading website in gigapixel photography creation, managed by G. Roumestan) and Kolor company (the global leader in image-stitching technologies).
To establish this panorama, 2800 photos were taken fromÂ the forefront of rock called the “tĂŞte de chien” in Turbie, above Monaco with a height of 550 meters and stitched with Autopano Giga Software. The panorama extends, from right to left, from the Fontvieille district of Monaco to Bordighera, Italian city. Are visible Beausoleil, Roquebrune Cap Martin, Ventimiglia. The shot was made duringÂ Monaco Grand Prix which is held annually in the streets of Monaco. It is widely considered to be one of the most prestigious and difficult automobile races in the world.
Guillaume Roumestan added 10 easter eggs into the picture. To be honnest we had some trouble to find them! We just found a Star Wars spacecraft… If you also have some trouble to find them, just ask Guillaume about the easter eggs’ location.
