Obama's Inauguration in Incredible Detail

Technology can be truly amazing. Take this image, for example. David Bergman, a professional photographer,while standing on the north press platform during President Obama's inaugural address on January 20 took 220 images which were knitted together for a final image size of almost 59,783 x 24,658 pixels, for a total of 1,474 megapixels.  

You can zoom in and see the smallest detail in sharp focus such as Yo-Yo Ma photographing the scene with his iPhone. 

Or you can see Justice Clarence Thomas catching a few zzzz's. It's the "Where's Waldo?" of Inaugurations.
