Description

I'll need to manually stitch this panorama again because it missed a third of the frame, resulting in errors in several places.

It is if you're not careful, that's why we didn't really stay that long and used caution (such as staying away from the moss [back home, I can't see moss the same way now :D], large metal structures or dense vegetation). The most problematic currently however is maintaining the sarcophagus which is getting old because if it breaks, that would create a second chernobyl incident. > I'm surprised the whole area isn't cordoned off. It is cordoned off, we had to go tru several military checkpoints (which we can't get photos of) to get to Pripyat, our guide applied for autorizations some weeks earlier so that we can get in. But the Chernobyl village, despite being in the Zone, is quite active however, several shops and many more people living there than you'd think, but you can't just go there without autorization.

    Thanks for the panoramas around Chernobyl Cecile. It's quite eerie seeing the abandoned neighborhoods. A chilling testament. I've read, or been led to believe, obviously mistakenly, that the area would be dangerous for many years to come. I'm surprised the whole area isn't cordoned off. The pan of the stadium with trees growing down on the field was quite an eye-catcher.
