Guest Editor:

Ella Derbyshire, Guest Editor of this issue of GigaPan Magazine, is originally from rural Rensselaer County in Upstate New York where she grew up with a fondness for cold, remote landscapes and for dark, starry skies. As a physician, she has the opportunity to practice medicine in some of the most remote places on Earth, including Arctic Alaska and the South Pole. Dr. Derbyshire uses photography to share her travel experiences with her children, her grandchildren and with others who are curious about such places but will never venture so far from home.
