Harbour Centre and Grouse Mountain

In the tradition of the Gigapixl Project, and a couple of lovely panoramas of Vancouver and Paris (via Darren Barefoot)—plus the photo of Vancouver up above—here is a super-zoomable stitched panorama of downtown Sydney, Australia, comprising 169 images taken over 52 minutes and assembled into a single 720 megapixel shot.

Thanks to Tony for the pointer.

P.S. Want more panoramas of those cities? Flickr will oblige: Vancouver, Paris, Sydney.

P.P.S. Here's some weird synchronicity: that amazing red Harbour Centre photo from Vancouver was taken by Warne Livesey, who now lives in this part of the world but is best known for something he did in Sydney—produce Midnight Oil's two best-selling albums, Diesel and Dust and Blue Sky Mining, along with their swan song, Capricornia. I had no idea that he was the photographer when I found the picture.
