Extreme Photography: Shooting Big Climbs at Yosemite

When you think photography and Yosemite National Park, you think of Ansel Adams shooting "Moon and Half Dome" or "El Capitan."

But today we're thinking about something a little different -- about the vertigo-inducing photography of Renan Ozturk. Working on behalf of National Geographic, Ozturk heads to Yosemite to shoot a feature story on the climbing culture that thrives in this valley surrounded by 3000-foot rock walls. The park features extreme A5 climbs that constantly push climbers to new limits, and naturally it takes a special photographer to record the action. How Renan does it? We'll let him tell the rest of the story ... H/T Curiosity Counts
