Ski Mountaineering Racing is said to be one of the hardest sports in the world and the Swiss Patrouille des Glaciers is perhaps the hardest of them all.

The race which is organized by the Swiss army was held from April 27-30. On foot and ski the runners run from Zermatt to Verbier a distance of 53 km.
From the start in Zermatt at 1620 m they climb to the highest point at Tête Blanche 3724 m and further down and up again before they reach Verbier. Read More

Basilica of Saint Peter - Basilica di San Pietro in Vaticano.
The St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican State inside Rome is the largest Christian church in the world. The cathedral covers 23,000 m2 and accommodates 60,000 people.

Used by the Pope for most of the Papal ceremonies like the Easter Vigil Mass.

Right now while I write this on Easter Sunday the large eastern Mass in St. Peter's Square in front of the Basilica take place.

This QTVR by Inaki Rezola is as far as I know the only existing one from inside the Basilica. Photography inside the Basilica is allowed but using a tripod is not allowed which makes it very difficult to do a high Quality Spherical panorama.

TOURISM CULTURE
The largest area for using VR Photography is tourism and documentation of historic and cultural sites.

Ercan F Gigi has photographed some of the largest mosques and "tombs of sultans" in Turkey The mosque you see here is the Bayezid Mosque in Istanbul.

Ercan has developed his own fullscreen Viewer which is used at his site www.nurris.com


IS VR PHOTO ART

That photography is an art form is not questioned but what about VR Photography. Do we have VR Photographers who uses interactive VR photography in a way we can call art. Eric Rougier FromParis.com is one of them who deserves the name VRartist.


360 degree VR can also be used for your family photos.

View some great examples from VR photographers around the world.
