Jeffrey Martin is a busy man. Having already shot an 80 gigapixel panorama of London’s skyline and a 40 gigapixel peek inside a Czech library, he has now turned his attention to England’s hallowed Wembley Stadium. The recently rebuilt home of football served as the stage for a new 360-degree panorama, shot during the FA Cup Final this Saturday, which spans 10 gigapixels in total and has been made available online at the source link below. Recording was done using a DSLR mounted to a custom robot rig that would continually pump out imagery to an equally exclusive Fujitsu workstation equipped with 192GB of RAM and 24 processing cores. All that grunt was used to automatically stitch more than 1,000 high-res images together, earning the finished product the title of world’s largest 360-degree sports panoramic photo. Give the source a bash to tag yourself if you were at the Final or to check to see who else was there.

Fashion designer John Galliano has revealed his Christmas tree for Claridge’s. This is the second year the Dior designer has created a tree for the London hotel. This year’s design was inspired by the ocean. The “Under the Sea” Christmas tree is a seascape fantasia with silver leaves, pink coral, sea horses, fish, anemones, starfish and jelly fish. The Telegraph reports that the tree was unveiled at a dinner that was hosted by model Stella Tennant and CEO of Christian Dior, Sidney Toledano, to mark the opening of Dior’s new London boutique in New Bond Street, W1.
