To obtain the best appreciation of the quality of the images on this site, they
should be displayed at a relatively small size, because each image has been
reduced in size to a maximum width of only 870 pixels, from the original
width of at least 4900 pixels (or 6000 pixels from my full frame cameras).
In addition, the images have been saved at a low quality setting.
To give you an appreciation of the amount of detail that can be seen in
the original image (before the reduction to web size), below is a 100% crop
of just a small area of the above image. In the background, you can just
make out the shape of Mt Ruapehu.
