Photographing the tallest tree in the world: National Geographic

This is a pretty short (1:27) and cool clip on how the latest photographs of one of the tallest Redwoods alive were created for the most recent issue of National Geographic magazine. I love thought provoking photographs that require a great deal of pre-visualization, planning and execution. Looks like three 1Ds Mark III cameras angled in three different directions, 6 pocket wizards, and a ton of rigging (3 weeks worth). Sweet!
