I was introduced to GigaPan today, a site for sharing hugely detailed panoramic photos stitched together from multiple images, and a gadget for taking them (though this is still rather expensive!). Some of the results using this technique (with or without the gadget) are stunning. Zoom in, scroll around to see what you can find, and be amazed... I'm sure this is going to catch on.
Explore some of the following, look at some of the snapshots of hidden detail that others have found:
