    Hi, I fell in love with this photo and I would really love to get a large image of it from somewhere.

    [​IMG]

    This is something I would like to print myself on a wallpaper type paper, to fill a wall in my living room. It would look fantastic, but I can't seem to find any place that would offer this for sale, even for a non commercial purpose.

    I'm located in Europe and I'm thinking of ordering the October 2009 magazine from ebay to try and scan the image for myself. I'm still waiting for a reply from National Geographic...

    Maybe someone here has this scanned or a larger version on their computer?

    I will be gratefull for any help [​IMG]

    No ideas, I just wanted to say I saw that issue at the doctor's office last night. WOW, I would love to have some great gear and shoot those things! I know why you want it, the fold out from the magazine was amazing.

    I wonder if that magizine is still at the doctor's office...;):mrgreen:


    BTW:
    It is not only an awesome shot, it is also a creative manner in which he chose to show the size of the tree.

    Yeah, funny. Those things are $20 buy it now on eBay, I can see why some folks would be tempted to just take it from an office, but I could never do that (I'm not under the impression that you would either, I'm just saying).

    I agree, I was blown away by it. I guess I should be subscribed to the magazine, then I wouldn't be contemplating getting the issue on eBay like the OP.

    Let us know what they say, how much, etc. I imagine it's very expensive.

    The majesty of that picture is amazing. It didn't quite hit me until I saw the people in the trees, that these things are massive!
