That's excellent! Those trees are huge. I would love to see them one day.

I counted 6 people on the tree or next to it in the picture. Not sure about the 6th with a white jacket.

They had a special on Nat Geo the other night about this photo and it was great. Try and see it if you can. Redwoods are amazing.

Where is the sixth person? I count 5 and don't see the one with the white jacket. It is like Where's Waldo and I fear I failed to find Waldo in white.

I counted 7 but one of them I'm not sure (I'm only going off this image, I don't have the big National Geographic poster)

I look up and down and think I see one with a white jacket - then maybe it is sky in the background. Not sure. One spot is lower left of the top guy with the yellow jacket.

Kirk,

The 3rd one up i am debating is it a white jacket or not. I looked and looked at the one way off on the left limb and counted it out. But it does look like a person.

If you like this, check out the work of James Balog http://www.jamesbalog.com/portfolio/index.html Go to the Tree portfolio. Many of these images were created by rappelling down a tree opposite the subject and taking a series (sometimes hundreds of frames) of images, then stitching them together. Some of these images took him more than 2 weeks of work to assemble.

He is also the guy responsible for "The Extreme Ice Project"

Cheers!
