It is a pretty awesome photo, but I won’t repost it here. Check it out over on NPR, which also has an article about it, a movie on the making-of, and a slideshow.

Sorry about the bad link. I was a bit in a rush when I posted and neglected my usual post-post link-check phase.

And thanks for getting my back, Topamax – I made the edit to the link in the post.

Topamax – I think if I devoted my life to only making large redwood turnings, I could probably get through it. So no, I don’t think I could ;)

If you go to the NatGeo site (they link it at the bottom of the article), there’s actually a lot more stuff, including a larger version of the gatefold image of the tree, another video with different footage that’s worth seeing, and interactive things, like the timeline of a huge redwood’s growth rings.
