My personal favorite VR-Pano shoot in 2006 is a panorama view from the world's tallest observation wheel.

The London Eye, also known as the Millennium Wheel, standing at 135m, took seven years to design and build and located next to Londons Themse. Serving as the ideal symbol for the Millennium, it represents the turning of the century.

The slow, 30-minute ride in high-tech "capsules" offers breathtaking views of London. Passengers can see over 25 miles in each direction and will view some of the world's most famous sights including Windsor Castle, the Palace of Westminster and the Houses of Parliament. There are over 15.000 visitors per day.

Mein persönlicher VR-Panorama Favorit für 2006 ist der Blick vom weltgroessten Riesenrad der Welt.

Das London Eye, auch bekannt unter dem Namen Millennium Karussell, ist eines der in Grossbritannien beruehmtesten neuen Attraktionen. Es ist mit 135m Höhe das weltgroesste Riesenrad, welches ganze 7 Jahren entwickelt und 1999 gebaut wurde. Da es als das Symbol des Milleniums gilt, repraesentiert es den Wechsel des Jahrhunderts.

Die langsame 30 Minuten Fahrt in High-Tech Kapselln bietet atemberaubende Einblicke auf London. Passagiere koennen mehr als 25 Milen in jede Richtung schauen und sehen einige der weltberuemtesten Sehenswuerdigkeiten wie das Windsor Castle, den Westminster und das Houses of Parliament. Mehr als 15.000 Menschen besuchen das Riesenrad taeglich.
