Cameras Custom Camera Rig Makes Stunning Vertical Panorama Of Redwood By Adam Frucci on October 2, 2009

Wildlife photographer Michael Nichols wanted to photograph a 90-metre tall redwood in a dense forest with no clear lines of sight. So he built a custom camera rig to take tons of close-ups to stitch together.
The result is a stunning composite of 83 different shots of this incredible tree. Look for a huge foldout of the image in the October issue of National Geographic, and here’s a video of Nichols talking about the process of capturing the image.
