QuicktimeVR: Summer solstice captured

People say that photos are worth more than words. It’s true – no words could ever completely represent the beauty of the Shirakawa Village in Japan, the Zurich China Garden in Switzerland, the windmills of Kinderdijk in the Netherlands, the north rim of the Grand Canyon in Arizona or many other spectacular locations. During the summer solstice weekend, June 19-21, more than 110 photographers in 32 countries captured QuickTime VR panoramas to represent the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) theme of World Heritage. While being on our way to Normandy/France we also participated in this project and took 2 panoramas of World War I cemeteries just north of Arras (France). Even though they are not on the UNESCO list, we feel they should be, as a lesson from history.
