Flash Panorama Of The Treasury and Fortress Petra in Jordan

Recently I've become more and more fascinated by 360 degree "Flash" Panoramas that various people are putting together.

Modern technology is making it possible to take photographs of an area...and then stitch them together using software (and know-how)...which then allows a user the ability to viturally tour amazing sites without ever having to leave the comfort of home.

The first one I saw, presented by the Vatican, gave a 36o degree, zoom-able and pan-able, view the Sistine Chapel...complete with Gregorian choir music in the background.

I plan to post that one soon.

Until then I found several other panoramas.

Facade of Al Khazneh, Petra, Jordan - 15 April 2010, Bernard Gagnon

My favorite is a 360 degree view of Petra...a treasury and fortress carved into the rocks of a small little canyon in Jordan.


Just click and hold your left mouse button to move around the image.

This is an ancient site...accessable from only one narrow opening in the canyon...and some believe it will play a significant role in the "end-times"...but all that goes way beyond what this post is about.

So anywho...check out the panorama of Petra.

Hope you enjoy it too!
