Viewer instructions: Use your mouse to navigate the image below. Drag your mouse to pan around the image, and use your mouse wheel to change magnification (on touch screens, use two fingers to zoom in and out). For a screen-filling view, click the full-screen button at the upper left.


Offline Viewing Options : The "Graphic" link above provides a large (often greater than 5 megabytes in size) downoadable photosphere image suitable for use in special viewer programs that can display photospheres as they're meant to be displayed. A number of Android graphic viewers are now available (one example: "QuickPic") that display photospheres in such a way that the viewer can rotate the Android device to any compass heading and the image rotates in step. To me, this is by far the best photosphere viewing experience. (These copyrighted downloads are for private viewing only, no distribution or publication.)

NOTE (06.2016): As time passes I have been replacing my earlier, low-resolution quadcopter photospheres with higher-resolution images (most having 3.5 times more image detail) taken using more recent quadcopters with better cameras. Titles of the newer, better images will appear in this color.

NOTE (10.2015): This is a new version of the photosphere gallery. This version uses the Pannellum photosphere viewer, which is better able to manage large photospheres through use of a multi-resolution scheme.

For in-depth background narratives about many of these images, be sure to visit my Alaska 2015 pages.
