A very creative and stunning use of perspective, timing and distance! BASE jumper Dean Potter walks a highline at Cathedral Peak in Yosemite National Park just as the Moon rises. This was shot with a zoom lens from over a mile away, and is part of a bigger project for National Geographic called The Man Who Can Fly.
