A (Very Cool) Photo of a Tree

This month's National Geographic has a cover story about redwood trees. Inside is a picture of a tree that is 300 feet tall and 1,500 years old. At NPR, the photographer describes the process of taking the shot, which included "three cameras, a team of scientists, a robotic dolly, a gyroscope, an 83-photo composite and a lot of patience." The page also features the photo itself, which is stunning, and requires some scrolling.
