Munnar tea plantations

Tea or Chai is the most widely drunk beverage in the whole world. The tea plant, Camellia Sansis, is a cultivated variety of a tree that has its origins in an area between India and China. There are three main varieties of the tea plant ­ China, Assam, and Cambodia ­ and a number of hybrids between the varieties. The China variety grows as high as nine feet (2.75 metres). It is a hardy plant able to withstand cold winters and has an economic life of at least 100 years.

David Robinson gets light into impossible places

This story begins about two and an half years ago, when being given a tour of Red Bull’s generously stocked Equipment Pool, amongst the plethora of cameras and endless walls of lenses, photographer David Robinson was shown a custom Octocopter. Designed to carry such cameras as RED’s Scarlet, at a time when the only cameras flying around were GoPros.

The main thing about this piece is the muscle behind it, and it opened a lot of doors regarding what equipment could be used. David wanted to take the idea as far as he could right away, and he knew that a hot shoe flash just wouldn’t cut it since one of his favorite things to do is add powerful flashlight to the daylight already in the scene.
