One of my biggest regrets about living in California for six years is that I never drove to Yosemite National Park, which was a mere 4.5 hours away. What was I thinking?
And time lapse videos like this don’t make me feel any better.
It’s a small comfort knowing I’ll be spending a week in the magnificent Colorado Rockies in September, but still. I’ll have to carve some time out of my life and visit Yosemite. And Yellowstone. And Antarctica, and Denali, and and and.
So much planet, so little time.
Apparently I could do nothing but post incredible time lapse videos all the time. Watch this staggeringly beautiful video, "Yosemite", and be in awe.
[YES, make it full screen and HD!]
The video was made by Sheldon Neill and Colin Delehanty, and the music? "Outro", by a group called M83.
The shots of the park during the day aren’t too shabby, either.
I’ve lived out west for twelve years now, and I’ve never made it to Yosemite park. Maybe it’s time to change that.
