I've always been both fascinated and inspired by Forests and Trees, I think it comes from having grown up near The New Forest in Dorset and having played there as a child. As an adult I've always wanted to visit Sequoia National Park in California and see a tree like this in real life.
This giant sequoia stands 75.3m tall, 8.2m wide and measures 1,274.3 cubic metres in volume. It's an estimated 3,200 years old and has never been completely photographed until now. This amazing photo was captured with the help of a tree climbing scientist. Behold, 32 days of work to take 126 individual photos, stitched together to create one amazing image.
Check out this short video too, it shows how this picture was taken and how it was put together.
