Amazing HD Timelapse Day and Night Video of Yosemite National Park
January 21, 2012 3:02 PM   Subscribe

There's been a lot of great photography of Yosemite National Park. National Geographic has done some excellent work and there's plenty of photos that provide a great historical view of the area. More recently there was a fantastic zoomable 17 gigapixel project (previously). But this HD time-lapse day & night video of several locations around Yosemite Park provides perhaps the most amazing view of the area yet. More info on the making of the video at Project Yosemite.

Thanks--the video link made me "wow" out loud. (...and wonder why on earth I'm living on the east coast.)

Great work. I loved the camera work, with rotating stars, vibrant colors, and the moving lens.

Wow wow wow. I loved the climber action on El Cap. The video reminded me to get out of the city and over to Yosemite ASAP.

Makes me wish for a night with no light polution so my kids could, just once, see what the night sky REALLY looks like

Try eastern Wyoming for that - with many sights just as awesome.
