This "inter active photograph" via a Newser article is quite stunning. As reported:
The Internet has gone wild over a photo this week, and deservedly so. The image in question: a shot of Mount Everest composed of some 400 individual photographs taken by filmmaker/five-time Everest climber David Breashears. He spoke with NPR about the image, which the Washington Post reports clocks in at 3.82 billion pixels. Visit his GlacierWorks site and you'll be able to zoom in on it in amazing fashion, seeing "not only the tents, but the little climbers" near Camp 3, explains Breashears. His impetus for creating the image wasn't just to please gawkers a few continents away, but to demonstrate climate change's effect on the mountain.

Don't try downloading the image, at 7.6GB it might take some time! ;)
