Check out this video on how photographer Michael Nichols set about photographing some seriously tall trees. National Geographic sent Nichols into the Redwood Forest for a year to get the image that appears in the magazine’s October issue. A year! Can you even imagine the budget that magazine must have? I’d love to know the final tally on how much the shot cost.
Nichols eventually got the shot with “three cameras, a team of scientists, a robotic dolly, a gyroscope, an 83-photo composite and a lot of patience,” says NPR’s The Picture Show blog. (And it’s pretty awesome indeed.)
