Polar Panoramas Posted

I have just posted two panoramas assembled from photos taken last July on Fourmilab's Nuclear Ninety North expedition to the North Pole and total solar eclipse. The Polar Ice Panorama was taken near the North Pole and shows the chaotic, ever-changing icescape of the Arctic sea ice. The second shows the coastline and sea ice off Hall Island in Franz Josef Land (80°5.70'N 58°3.23'E). These are large images; use your browser's scroll bars to explore the detail in them.

Both of these panoramas were created by digitally compositing sequences of handheld images using the hugin, Panorama Tools, and Enblend free software tools.
