Cape Town in high definition
This amazing picture of the Mother City was taken by Tinus le Roux from South African virtual tour company Virtual Africa. It is the highest definition photograph ever taken of Cape Town. If it doesn’t impress you now, try zooming in at the link below –the detail is truly astonishing.
The Virtual Africa team refers to the picture as a “high definition virtual tour”. It took the team three hours and 205 000 pixels to take this 25 GB mega-picture, which would be approximately 9m x 15m if it were printed out.

It’s a great picture of a great city!
