“The amazing Retina display on the new Apple iPad delivers four times as many pixels, so we decided to do the same with Fotopedia National Parks. The result is spectacular,” said Jean-Marie Hullot, CEO of Fotopedia. “To celebrate National Parks Week, during which the admittance to the parks is free, we decided to make the National Parks app free as well so that everyone with an Apple iPad or iPhone can enjoy their incredible beauty.” Delivering a sharper and lifelike experience with HD images, National Parks takes people on a visual exploration of all 58 US National Parks including Yosemite, Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon and Glacier National Park - with more than 3,000 breathtaking pictures created by renowned photographer Quang-Tuan Luong.
National Park pictures
This extraordinary photo collection is the result of a 10-year project. Quang-Tuan Luong traveled over 100,000 miles, by car, aircraft of all sizes, ferry, motor boat, kayak, even venturing underwater, and climbing to the summit of Mount McKinley. Quang-Tuan Luong is the first person to photograph all 58 US National Parks with a large format camera (5x7 inches). This technique uses film with a surface area 25 times larger than regular 24x36 mm film and produces extremely detailed photos, allowing the viewer to feel a part of the landscape. Quang-Tuan Luong was featured in the PBS documentary film "The National Parks; America's Best Idea" in 2009.
