Redwoods and Ferns

Old-growth Redwood Grove and ferns panorama. This scene features two prehistoric species - ferns and redwoods with some of tallest trees on Earth in Humboldt State Park, Northern California. The tallest Coastal Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) is the tallest tree in the world at a measured 379 ft.

The incredibly fine resolution (> 1000 Megapixels) of this image was made possible through a process of synthesizing over 5000 images into a 360° map, which is projected onto a 2D plane with an equirectangular projection. Each individual frame is a High Dynamic Range composite of 9 images. These frames are then stiched together, like a jigsaw puzzle, to produce the final product.

Printed at an exhibition quality 1440 dpi, this image would be 400'' x 4800'' in size for a one-to-one scale.
