This picture is a 360-degree panorama of the Penland iron studio. If you click on it, you can navigate around the image–left, right, up, and down. It was made by photographer (and Penland student) Christopher Ellenbogen–one of a series of ten Penland panoramas that he made this summer. You can see all of them (in a bigger, wider window) on our page at 360 Cities.
Special note: If you have an iPad, you can stand with it in your hands and turn your whole body around and watch the panoramas swirl across the screen.
